World Wetlands Day 2008 -- Greece


We celebrated for the 11th consecutive year the WWD in Evros Delta Visitor Centre on Friday, 1st February.

The activities that took place were:

  • Powerpoint presentation on "Healthy wetlands - Healthy People"
  • "Turtle" Handicraft
  • Competition with questions on the message of the day
  • Distribution of posters and stickers
  • Guided tour in the wetland

200 schoolchildren participated (from 5 schools of the area). The event was covered by 3 local and one national TV channel, local newspapers and radio stations.

We reproduced the poster and the sticker "Healthy Wetlands - Healthy People", a copy of which is sent to you by post.

Thank you once more for the inspiration on such a wonderful day.
