The choice of Ancient Olympia, where the Memorandum was signed, was not only accidental. The universal symbolism of the monument and the sanctity of the space, make it a national and world capital. And since cultural capital is directly related to the natural environment, the company only dedicated to this purpose could be.

“The government’s attention is focused on Ilia”

“The entire government staff is focused on Ilia. It is very important to know that the State pays its attention, as do we MPs who are here. What is important and shows with the presence of Mr. Amyras is that there is cooperation between the public sector and the private initiative. To avoid such natural disasters, such as forest fires, we need everyone’s input. We need the contribution of active citizens, who must guard their neighborhoods and suburban forests together with the Forest Service and the Fire Brigade and be ready, while we also need the Local Government. And of course the companies play a very important role because through the funds they can “adopt” a forest area, to revive it and to protect it for the future “.

“The same mistakes must not be made”

“Ilia has been tested in the past. This time the same mistakes are not allowed.

We support such actions, we are here and we give a lot of congratulations to all these people who support our region “.

Panagiotis Lattas, forester of Pyrgos

“We have to invest in prevention, because it is the only way to reduce the cost of extinguishing and the cost of damage. We are doing this with the presence of the Deputy Minister of Environment for Forest Affairs and the company “Papadopoulos”, which we thank for the donations he makes, and the forces of the forest cooperatives that worked quite satisfactorily, and we are particularly pleased with the flood and anti-corrosion projects. We hope to continue with the cleaning and removal works of the sub-vegetation of the forests of Ancient Olympia and the wider area, because our area and the crops have been irreparably affected by the three big fires in the last 25 years “.
