INTERREG IIIA PROGRAMME
Title: “ACTIONS FOR RAISING AWARENESS OF SPECIFIC POPULATION GROUPS ON SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES"
This project was originally undertaken by the Hellenic Association for the Environment and Culture. The chairman and members of Aeiforum have played a key role in this project.
The publicity and public awareness, especially among special population groups such as policy makers and stakeholders are expected to be activated for strengthening environmental management and natural resources in a way that leads to sustainability. The main objective is to understand the significance of these scarce resources and the ability to bring benefits both to improve the quality of life at the intervention areas and their economies. Obtaining an understanding that there is not a dilemma between economic development and environmental protection, would lead to better management of resources. This dilemma is artificial and it is possible that mutual respect can lead to the development of both.
