On June 27, 2016, the 30th International Conference / Youth Forum CARETAKERS OF THE ENVIRONMENT INTERNATIONAL began in Aalborg, Denmark, the fourth largest city in the country, and lasted 7 days with a large participation of students and teachers from all over the world.
The 30th anniversary conference focused on "Sustainable societies" and the students presented the research projects they carried out in their schools in 2015-2016.
The Greek Annex of "Caretakers of the Environment Greece" was represented by 4 students (Eleftheria Vlachou, Giorgos Kontogoulides, Theophilos Kevezitidis, Andromachi Kevezitidou) and 2 teachers (Giannis Papoutsakis and Niovi Iliadou members of the Caretakers ).
The research project presented as "SUSTAINABLE URBAN MOBILITY (SUM)-How to make life easier in Thessaloniki" was held in collaboration with the HIT (Hellenic Institute of Transport) research center. The Greek delegation also participated at the food and fun market and performed traditional dance at the cultural evening.
Two afternoon visits took place during the conference, one in the city of Aalborg and one in the zoo and the Vikings Museum, as well as a field trip to sustainable energy and organic production units and a wind farm park.
The 30th Congress in Denmark was a marvelous experience for the Greek delegation!
