Our Mission statement

The “Energy for Life Travels” is an environmental awareness program that calls
upon remote destinations, by spreading ideas, thoughts and insights of ecological
interest to students, as well as to the inhabitants of the places it visits.
The program aims to inform and raise awareness among the local communities
on issues related to the respect and preservation of our environmental heritage,
on sustainable development, on energy management methods and on natural
resources, not just in theory but mainly in practice.
The program is enacted by the non-profit civil society “Agoni Grammi Gonimi”
with the sponsorship of HELLENIC PETROLEUM, under the auspices of the
Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs; it has the support of European
Parliament and takes place between October and May.
For the school year 2018-2019 the primer focus is the 17 goals set by the UN and
more specifically the following seven:

Sustainable Development Goals








We support access to equal and quality education with no discrimination over
gender, religion, race, by helping students acquire skillsets that promote
sustainable development and a sustainable way of life.
We support access to sustainable, easily accessible and modern energy sources
through infrastructure.
Through raising awareness, by involving a great number of people we contribute
to the general effort made to reduce the negative environmental impact of the
local communities and especially when it comes to waste management.
We press on adopting methods of reducing waste, recycling and reusing.
We support access for remote areas in actions that raise awareness and
educate people on the topics of climate change and managing the greenhouse
A big part of the actions pertains to the topic of marine polution and the ways we
can protect the marine ecosystems.
We cooperate with experienced entities that have been our trusted partners since
the very beginning as well as new ones every year and we respect any existing
policies when it comes to sustainable development.
The program comes to life by cooperating with several ΝGO,universities,
professors etc whose main interest is the environment.
