Children are the future

Whether society experiences progress, stagnation or decline depends on the wisdom and sensitivity with which future generations are treated, because it is they whose vision will shape the future.

Guided by this conviction, the G & A Mamidakis Foundation participates in actions for primary and secondary school pupils and university students, which aim to broaden and enrich the experiences provided to them by their daily life and education.

In addition, firmly believing that raising awareness, especially of younger generations, is a necessary condition for change, it organises children’s events with an environmental theme, as well as trips to learn about biodiversity in eastern Crete.
