EcoFans 1
The EcoFans, equipped with drawing boards, stationery, and compasses, walked along the stone-paved paths designed by architect Dimitris Pikionis in the 1950s, when he transformed the surroundings of the Acropolis, inspired by tradition and modernism. Elaborate stone-paving, the use of plants indigenous to the Attica region, and visual integration of the surrounding landmarks into the landscape are some of the characteristics of Pikionis’ masterpiece. "Walking along Pikionis’ paths and on Philopappou Hill" was an experiential activity aimed at learning the relationship between nature and history and at raising the environmental awareness of children through the use of English. The EcoFans explored secret corners, experienced the harmonious coexistence of ancient and modern art, landscape and history, eco-inspected the area, and recorded its current status.
