Environmental education

Our relationship with the environment is built from the first years of our school life, so one of the goals of the Awareness Department of the Parnitha National Park Management Agency is to educate students that the natural environment must and can be protected.

The purpose of Environmental Education is to make students aware of the relationship between man and his natural and social environment, to raise awareness of the problems associated with it and to be active with special programs to contribute to the overall effort to address them.
