The Speech at the Hellenic Parliament

We had the honor to participate in the Special Permanent Committee on Environmental Protection at the Hellenic Parliament on the occasion of the nomination of Lefteris Arapakis as Young Champion of the Earth from the UN Environment Programme and Ambassador of the Mediterranean Coast from the UNEP/MAP – SPA/RAC.

During the session, we had the opportunity to inform the members of the Committee about Enaleia’s work and exchange opinions with other stakeholders on the marine-related climate challenges in Greece and the Mediterranean. The main focus was on facing marine plastic pollution in the Mediterranean, educating new fishers, and educating professional fishers on sustainable fishing methods.

Special thanks to the MP Dionysia-Theodora Avgerinopoulou and MP Ioannis Melas for the invitation.
