Title: Environmental Educator/Oceanographer
Bio:
I am an Environmental Engineer and Educator with an Msc in Marine Technology and Science. During the last years I worked in integrated coastal zone management, coastal erosion and marine protected areas (MPAs) related issues. I am committed to marine conservation sector and my ambition is to create a successful MPA in the Aegean sea. My experience in adults and children environmental education developed my skills in social interaction which I consider a major factor in the creation process of an MPA. Aegean sea is a diamond which we can and have to preserve and ameliorate and there are ways to achieve that together with sustainable local economic activity.
