Training Environmentally sensitive and awakened citizens
The first educational program for the rescue of the planet from waste was completed this October 2016, with the participation of the students and the teachers of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th elementary schools, in the municipality of Agios Nikolaos, Crete.
The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation under the belief that the basic condition to change the human behavior in favor of the environment is the awakening of forthcoming generations, it has supported the “Save the planet from waste” program, which was put together and materialized by the environmental organization, Planet Agents.
Planet Agents was founded in 2009 and its aim is to create a sustainable future through education and the action of children, while all its educational programs are authorized by the Ministry of Education.
The students of Agios Nikolaos, discovered the impact that waste has on the environment through educational activities, they became aware of the source, as well as the significance of the problem, and they promised to remain Planet Agents and actively participate in solving it.
The ultimate goal of the program is to create these groups of people, who from a young age, through newly acquired knowledge and values, they will become powerful advocates of the message for active protection of the planet, at school, at home, and within their wider community.
