On the occasion of this year’s World Environment Day (Sunday, June 5, 2022), GEFYRA S.A. launched a series of actions in Achaia and Etoloakarnania that have already started and will be completed next week.
Having at its core the volunteer movement "Ethexis" of the University of Patras and in the context of their partnership for elaborating volunteer actions through the synergy platform "AM' EPOS - AM' ERGON" (DICTUM-FACTUM), GEFYRA and the University organized a voluntary clean-up action in the coastal area of Rion Fortress, with the support of the Region of Western Greece, on Sunday 29 May 2022.
The organizers were joined by the movement "Project KaPa" and the Erasmus Student Network (ESN UOPA) of the University. The action was open to the citizens who came after having made known their intention online in a special form in order to get more useful information and continue to be informed about other environmental or social volunteering actions.
