“Changing ourselves before we change our neighborhood…”
Original activity with a summary of the basic environmental principles and visits to the Hellenic American Union buildings. There, members note down “environmental violations” and discuss ways to solve the problems they observe.
Saturday, 19 April 2008 was an action day for the EcoFans Juniors. Early in the morning, the positive tension was building as the Club's members remembered what they had learned and done with the help of a slideshow that summarized all the meetings held until then. A short break and the tension transformed the EcoFans Juniors into Eco-Inspectors! With the slogan “Think Eco, Act Now”, four groups of eco-inspectors scanned the Hellenic American Union main building and identified areas that are potentially hazardous for the environment. Once an area was identified as such, it was designated with a ticket (.pdf, 198 KB) that noted the environmental hazard and bared the signatures of the inspectors.
After all the results were summarized, a report was sent to the Hellenic American Union Administration, asking for their immediate cooperation in transforming the Hellenic American Union into an example of an environmentally sound institution. After all, the motto of the EcoFans Juniors Club starts with the phrase “Changing ourselves before we change our neighborhood…”; therefore, change must begin at the Hellenic American Union itself, before it spreads to the Kolonaki area, to the EcoFans’ own neighborhoods, and to the rest of the world.
