Greek politicians celebrate World Environment Day


Greek politicians celebrated World Environment Day on June 5.

Greek President Katerina Sakellaropoulou hosted a discussion on Saturday in the garden of the presidential residence entitled “Our world after the pandemic: facing climate change”. The president opened the conversation by discussing the changes necessitated by the environmental crisis before distinguished guests, including Manolis Pleionis (director of the National Observatory of Athens) and Emmanuella Dousi (professor at the University of Athens), shared their point of view.

“We have an obligation to provide our children with an environment that is no worse than the one we received from our parents,” read a statement released by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Twitter. He stressed that protecting the environment requires plans and actions, not just words and slogans. The Tweet was accompanied by a video on the government’s environmental initiatives.

“The Mitsotakis government aims to be at the forefront of the implementation of the European Green Deal, for the transition to a clean and cyclical economy and the fight against climate change,” said Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias in a message uploaded to Twitter.
