Ecological- / Nature conservancy
In our current consumption and packaging society old “disposable”
habits have fatal consequences. Today our waste consist a lot of plastic material
and others, not or only very slowly rotting substances which are often burden with
harmful substances. They need a assured landfilling and waste management. Already
standard in Central Europe, the disposal of waste represents a major problem in
Crete and is a continuous conflict between Greece and the European Community.
Particularly at the historic island Crete people simply throw their waste “
in to nature” and leave it to the forces of nature. Therefore you can find
wild rubbish dump all over the island, often with a negative shape for the landscape
and a destructive and harmful influence to the environmental and nature.
The heading Forum and the information leaflets to environmental and conservation
won’t only inform but sensitise for the problems, especially relating to the
fact that all sectors of society need to contribute to environmental and conservation

Picture is showing waste on the waterfront of the river Aposselemi in the delta area; today perhaps a irretrievable destroyed area in the north of Crete not far from Iraklio.
