The protection of the environment requires educated and active citizens
In our Greek page we are listing a number of initiatives and grass-roots groups and NGOs who are exercizing leadership and announce initiatives to involve people in the protection of the environment in Greece. Here we attempt to start collecting headlines about active citizens worldwide protecting their right to their natural commons, protecting their right to environmental protection, biodiversity, human rights, and clean water - to name only a few. In remote places in the world where people protect their natural rights against large financial interest, are inspiring to us all and it is our responsibility that their voice is being heard in other places too. In a 'flat' world (per Thomas Friedman) environmental protection is a global concern.
