AENAOS THALASSA is a non-profit organization established in late 2019 with the aims of protecting the environment, especially but not exclusively the marine one, and supporting any project, initiative and activity which promotes the above, as well as the sustainable development and management of global marine and coastal ecosystems, with a priority set on the Mediterranean Sea and especially its part in Greece.
Thalassa (meaning “sea” in Greek) Foundation is a non-profit environmental organisation, founded in 2013, that promotes the safeguarding and the preservation of marine life of the Mediterranean. Marine protected areas, rare species, sensitive ecosystems, they are all in the centre of its initiatives. Through participation, environmental engagement and synergies it aims at sustainability, where communities are able to attain economic development without draining their marine natural reserves. Its ultimate goal is to set a replicable example of sustainable development and create a group of Blue Islands that will links environmental protection and preservation to their future economic development and viability. Driven by this vision and by choosing the National Marine Park of Alonissos Northern Sporades as the pilot area of its action, Thalassa Foundation supported and implemented a series of activities that lead to restoration, preservation, sustainability, education and environmental awareness. Furthermore, it encourages research and works closely with the scientific society on numerous environmental issues and at the same time it enhances the development of local community entrepreneurship in a way that is fully harmonised with nature.
