The 19th Habitat is completed

The three-year project “Habitat - Nature in our Yard” which was designed and implemented by ARCTURUS with the sole support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the sponsorship of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, is about to be completed. The project concerns the development of environmental sensitivity actions and experiential education for children and teenagers, through the creation of model botanical gardens.

During March, the 19th Habitat was completed in the yard of the “I Melissa”, Girls’ Boarding Orphanage in Panorama, Thessaloniki, with the theme “Trees that prefer water”. For its completion, the contribution of the Pylaia - Chortiatis Municipality proved crucial, regarding the preparation of the space and the transfer of all the necessary materials, so we kindly thank the municipality for this.

The habitats, 100 square meters each, have plants of characteristic habitats of the Greek nature and are artistic interventions in the school yards and in the institutes of vulnerable social groups. The habitats are being prepared accordingly with the contribution of the local municipalities and other carriers, while ARCTURUS and its team, with the collaboration of the children, the teachers and all the responsible parts, undertake the mission to reform the outdoor spaces with the aim to make them green.

Subsequently, the physiology of the yards radically changes, since they host and live together with a habitat, while the children also acquire a new daily life, because after the completion of the plantings, they have adopted and also committed themselves to the care of the yard’s plants.

More information, all the news and the development of the project are available to be seen and watched through ARCTURUS’ BlogSpot in the address http://bit.ly/BIOtopos, while in the Facebook page “Habitat – The nature in our yard” (https://www.facebook.com/BIOtopos) there is plenty of photographic footage and frequent updating.
