Children raise their ecological awareness by participating in small actions of respect and love for the environment, living and caring for the place in which they spent a lot of time on a daily basis: their school. On 24November, the students of the 19th Primary School of Heraklion planted a series of aromatic plants of the Cretan flora in the yard of their school, which they continue to take care of under the supervision of their teachers. They also participated in a theatrical play workshop, which was specially designed for this day and was implemented by the Theater Pedagogy of Crete in order to raise awareness among children about how we coexist harmoniously with the greenery in our city. Sympraxis Team had the pleasure to coordinate the planting action within the overall communication programme undertaken on behalf of Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU), for the project “Heraklion Urban Green: We are changing the climate in the city“. The project is an important synergy of the HMU and the Municipality of Heraklion for the enhancement of urban greenery, aiming to record the needs of the city of Heraklion for urban green space regeneration, the elaboration of proposals for the aesthetic and bioclimatic upgrading, and the adoption of innovative methods for the effective maintenance and upgrading of these spaces.
