HELMEPA Junior Program

The HELMEPA Junior Environmental Educational Program commenced in 1993 as a new initiative of HELMEPA. Each year the program gives the opportunity to over 4,000* children throughout Greece, that voluntarily become its Members, to be informed and take action towards the protection of the marine environment.

* Following the decision taken by HELMEPA’s Board of Directors, the
  Program accepted 5,900 children-members during the 2012-2013 school year.

The school children participating in the program are of ages between 5-13 years old, as this target group has proven to be far more receptive to environmental messages. The children organized in groups of 10 and with the support of their teachers, who voluntarily participate in the program, undertake a respectable number of activities related to the marine environment as well as to the general environmental problems that our planet is currently facing.

Οn initiative of the Secretary-General of IMO, E. Mitropoulos, children-members of MEPAs take part at the International Children's Conference for the Environment that UNEP, the United Nations Environmental Program, organizes biannually at a different country.
