From 24 to 27 April 2018, MEdIES visited the city of Thessaloniki within the Non Conventional Water Resources Programme in Greece (coordinated also by the GWP-Med) to implement awareness raising activities on issues related to the non-conventional water resources.

The activities included school visits and a teachers’ training semiar, and  were organised in close cooperation with the ESD Officers of Primary and Secondary School Education Departments of the Eastern Thessaloniki sub-region. MEdIES activities target mainly the students of late primary and early high school level (10-13 years old), aiming to inform and sensitize them on the issue of water saving, particularly through the revival of the traditional practice of rainwater harvesting and water recycling. MEdIES approach is experiential, hands-on and discovery-based.


Totally 286 students participated in the activities that took place in seven (7) different schools of Thessaloniki (6 Primary schools and 1 High-School, most of which located in the area of Kato Toumpa) and animated by MEdIES Officers Ms Iro Alampei, Ms Vicky Malotidi and Mr Vassilis Psallidas. Additionally, on April 25, a training seminar for the teachers was organised as well; 31 teachers were engaged in the MEdIES activities in Thessaloniki.

It seems that both teachers and students who took part in the activities enjoyed the programme and found it useful and important, based on the anonymous evaluation in which they participated (see some characteristic quotes from the students’ questionnaires that follow).
