The climate in your hands
Our first campaign to inform the Greek society about the climate crisis’s causes, effects and solutions, by raising awareness and mobilizing society.
The campaign was conducted with the kind support of Ethniki Insurance.
No more coal!
One of the most important successes in the history of the WWF. The "Alliance against Coal" managed, with the cooperation of 8 municipalities, to mobilize thousands of people in local communities. Under the weight of pressure, at the beginning of 2009 the Minister of Development put an end to the plans for 6 new proposed power plants based on polluting coal.
In 2004 WWF Greece participated in WWF's EU-wide campaign “Detox - say no chemicals” aiming at effective control and phase out of the most harmful chemicals.
This campaign, which began in 1998 and ended in 2000, opened the public debate on forest fires and the root causes of them. After the mobilization of thousands of supporters of the organization, a series of realistic proposals were submitted to the competent bodies.
This campaign gave the baton to the three-year program "The Future of Our Forests" which started in 2007 as an immediate response to the catastrophic fires of that year.
Diversion of Acheloos
The decades-long battle against the diversion of the Acheloos River, in collaboration with four other environmental organizations, has borne fruit. Flag in favor of rational water management and against the pharaonic public works that see the environment only as an obstacle, our struggle has been crowned with three victories in the Council of State. As long as the issue remains open, we will be on the front line!
A beach for Caretta
The first WWF Greece campaign and one of the most successful, mobilizing thousands of WWF members across Europe. Thanks to their assistance, we succeeded in 1993 in the purchase of a large area in Sekania, Zakynthos, thus protecting the most important spawning beach of Caretta in the entire Mediterranean from the tourist leveling. Today, Sekania is the core of Zakynthos National Park: the only beach in Greece where the sea turtle can easily build its hundreds of nests.
