Cyclades Green Volunteers

18.000€ awarded

Cyclades Green Volunteers is a new exciting CPF programme enabling interested active citizens and youth to engage with local communities concerning environmental challenges in the Cyclades islands in Greece.

Especially this year (2021) the programme gives priority to British and Greek (ideally linked to the UK) volunteers as we celebrate the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution, marking Britain’s contribution to the Greek Struggle.

Volunteers are invited to offer environmental work in cooperation with local champions on the Cycladic islands of Andros, Naxos and Syros, and at the same time familiarise themselves with the Cycladic way of life and its unique characteristics.

The Program mainly focuses on the below areas:

-Wildlife protection and conservation

-Sustainable waste management

-Nature conservation and local identity.

The Cyclades Green Volunteers is a Cyclades Preservation Fund programme, supported for 2021 by the British Embassy Athens.
Many thanks to our local partners for 2021 the Andros Research Center, the Koinsep APANO MERIA of Syros and the Naxos Wildlife Association for their collaboration.
Special thanks to the Citizens in Action< for their training workshops.
