Sunday 25 September 2022
On the last weekend of September (the 24th and the 25th), the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is organizing the first SNFCC Green Weekend, a two-day event dedicated to environmental awareness, under the comprehensive title “Climate Change and I.”
From 10 am to 10 pm, Stavros Niarchos Park, from the Great Lawn and the Pine Grove to the Mediterranean Garden, the Dome and the Vegetable Garden, as well as all along the perimeter of the SNFCC, the SNFCC will be filled with activities aimed at young and old alike, revolving around the questions: “What is climate change?” and “What can I do about climate change?”.
On September 25, at 19:00, the SNFCC Dome will host a panel discussion moderated by Iphigenia Taxopoulou. Five speakers will attempt to answer the question: “What can I do about climate change?” as well as to highlight initiatives to address the issue in light of Green Architecture, Sustainable Mobility, Marine Plastic Pollution, Overfishing, Food, and Climate Justice. Each of the five panel participants — Lefteris Arapakis, Co-founder and Director of the nonprofit ENALEIA; Gogo Delogianni, Chef; Agis Mourelatos, Architect; Spiros Papageorgiou, Director of Development at the NGO Cities for Cycling; Elita Fasoula, member of Fridays for Future Thessaloniki — will focus on presenting the problem and the prevailing trends in its management, and talk about how each of us can actively contribute to tackling the climate crisis.
The event will be offered with simultaneous interpretation into the Greek Sign Language.
All SNFCC Green Weekend events are made possible thanks to an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
