All 25 of the students from the Kellogg School of Management in the US have declared themselves helplessly addicted to summertime in Greece following their trips to Mykonos, Santorini and Schinias this August.
The young people were simply bowled over by the dramatic landscapes, the magical sandy beaches, the Aegean’s myriad shades of blue, and, of course, the vibrant night life! So, having taken part in a beach clean-up and made donations to our work, they each went on to make a pledge to our ,“Clean Seas: Swear to Care” campaign.
The clean-up was carried out in cooperation with the Schinias-Marathon National Park, one of whose representatives gave a talk on the value of the area as a habitat for wildlife to the team of volunteer ‘cleaners’.
