Interview of Proffessor Emannouella Doussis , on Climate Change, Environmental International Law etc

Jul 20201

Interview of  Political Scientist Proffessor Emmanuella Doussis

 Dept. of Political Science and Public Administration, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens


As part of our project’s  research, students of 2nd Junior High School of Amaliada, Greece, prepared a political scientist interview after collecting and studying information about environmental policies in Greece and around the world.

We had the honour and great joy to get in contact with Proffessor Emannouella Doussis , an expert on Environmental International Law and  International Organisation, United Nations System, Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes and International Environmental Law.

She was very ethousiastic and supportive to our project and she also sent signed copies of her  book “Climate Change: Facts and Dilemmas” for our “Erasmus Green mini library” in our School’s Erasmus multipurpose classroom.

Professor Emmanuella Doussis book “Climate Change: Facts and Dilemmas”, Papadopoulos Publishers, Athens, 2017 (in Greek)


She answered all students questions gladly and congratulated us for our work ! We are very happy and honoured to post and publish her interview in our last digital magazine on August 2020 and on this blog . It will also be presented

We are also going to keep in touch with Dr Emannouella Doussis next years even after our Erasmus project, as with all our collaborators, because environmental education , global ecology and the fruitful communication between our students and the scientists and specialists we contacted during these amazing years, are going to be a very important part of our school life in the future too. In her interview she also proposed that our school can continue by preparing other projects, like for example drafting our own Green Deal for Ileia Prefecture.

Proffessor Doussis says in her interview:

This is an amazing project and I am sure that you have gained a great experience in participating and developing a culture of communication with high school students from other parts of Europe. You should be grateful to your professors who took the initiative to participate in this project and lead you to this wonderful path. You should continue this way and try to build bridges among different school communities even in your region with the aim of creating sustainable solutions. The future is yours and you should be involved in this process of working for a better and more sustainable world.


Thank you so much Proffessor Emmanouella Doussis!!!

Some information on Environmental law:

Environmental law is  very important to study and use as a guide for change , both during our project and in the future, as it seems it does not yet have the really important and basic role it should in our lives. Pollution control: air and water quality,  waste management, contaminant cleanup, chemical safety. Resource sustainability : water , forest and mineral resources, wildlife and plants…  Principles as Sustainable development, Equity,Public participation and transparency, Precautionary principle, Prevention, Polluter pays principle!

“Environmental law is a collective term encompassing aspects of the law that provide protection to the environment. A related but distinct set of regulatory regimes, now strongly influenced by environmental legal principles, focus on the management of specific natural resources, such as forests, minerals, or fisheries. Other areas, such as environmental impact assessment, may not fit neatly into either category, but are nonetheless important components of environmental law. “( wikipedia)

 Interview of

Mrs Haroula Kromyadou

Responsible for Environmental Education Projects of Arcturos NGO

2nd Junior High School of Amaliada, Greece



Foundation of ARCTUROS

“ARCTUROS is a non profit, non governmental, environmental organization (NGO) founded in 1992, focusing on the protection of wildlife fauna and natural habitat, in Greece and abroad.

The foundation of ARCTUROS was driven by constant need to solve the problem of bear and wolf imprisonment; a common occurence at the time. It was that need, which led to the creation of a complete action framework, under the umbrella of ARCTUROS.”


Arcturos has helped a lot with our project all this years, and kindly and generously offered to our school all kinds of printed and digital material including books and leaflets and dvds with multimedia products for our research and study . We thank them a lot and we are really inspired and moved by their work and amazing activities and efforts. 

Functioning of the Environmental Center of ARCTUROS

“Among other activities of ARCTUROS, priority has been given to scientific research as well as to providing environmental education and raising public awareness on matters such as biodiversity and viability, while practicing political pressure based on complete programs and solutions.”

Haroula Kromyadou as the responsible for the Arcturos center Educational projects offered to hel us with the activists – specialists interviews and answered our qusteions in difficult times during the Covid19 Pandemic. We are really grateful for all her work and help, and we admire her strength and positive energy as all her colleagues as well. We are going to work with Arcturos next year after our project’s end too, and we will also contribute to their work in as many ways as we can.

“My name is Haroula Kromiadou and I’ m a philologist-pedagogist with post-graduate studies in School Pedagogy and Environmental Education. I work at the NGO ARCTUROS, where my responsibilities include planning and implementing Environmental Education projects for children and adults. I met ARCTUROS when I was a student as a volunteer and a short time later I was offered a job to work there. I accepted the job because I always loved animals and children.”

Read  the full very intertesting interview of Mrs Kromyadou in the pdf file attached above.

Information on the European Union’s renewable energy policies- sustainable goals – EU countries profiles examples and comparisons George Papachristodoulou

Jun 20205


One of the most important parts of our Erasmus project students’ researches was finding and evaluating information.  They were introduced to the official sites with  true statistical  charts, legit information and interactive research and data tools, providing for example comparisons results, as between Eu countries “green” policies and sustainable goals achievement status. In a 2019  survey, 67% of young people said finding truthful information online is one of the biggest challenges they face. So our students were invited through this three year project  to improve their internet sources evaluation and research skills too!

In the article you can find information on European Union Energy policy, very useful links and charts and information on 17 goals for sustainable develpoment as well as Greece’s profile in 17 goals achievements, and a comparison with our partner school’s (Galileo Galilei) country, Italy, on renewable energy use policies!

SHOW YOUR STRIPES!!! – Global Warming study – 2nd Junior High School ofAmaliada, Greece

Mar 202012

Are you one of those who think that Climate Change is a Myth?
Please check these graphic images that depict the global temperature change from 1850 to 2019!!!



During our climate change study we came upon  “Show yourt stripes” site by Professor Ed Hawkins (University of Reading) !

So useful and graphic that we could not resist depicting our country’s and our partner countries’ graphs of temperature change this past century. Check your country or region by visiting the site


The graphics have a CC-BY 4.0 license, so can be used for any purpose as long as credit is given to Professor Ed Hawkins (University of Reading) and a link is provided to this website.

Europe’s warming stripes since 1901

Greece’s warming stripes since 1901


Italy’s warming stripes since 1901


Germany’s warming stripes since 1901

“These ‘warming stripe’ graphics are visual representations of the change in temperature as measured in each country over the past 100+ years. Each stripe represents the temperature in that country averaged over a year. For most countries, the stripes start in the year 1901 and finish in 2019. For the ocean basins and for several countries with longer datasets available the stripes start in the 19th century instead. For two cities (Stockholm and Vienna), the data starts in the 18th century.

For virtually every country or region, the stripes turn from mainly blue to mainly red in more recent years, illustrating the rise in average temperatures in that country.

These graphics are specifically designed to be as simple as possible, and to start conversations about our warming world and the risks of climate change. There are numerous sources of information which provide more specific details about how temperatures have changed, so these graphics fill a gap and enable communication with minimal scientific knowledge required to understand their meaning.


For most countries, the data comes from the Berkeley Earth temperature dataset, updated to the end of 2019. For some countries (USA, UK, Switzerland, Germany, France & Sweden) the data comes from the relevant national meteorological agency. For each country, the average temperature in 1971-2000 is set as the boundary between blue and red colours, and the colour scale varies from +/- 2.6 standard deviations of the annual average temperatures between 1901-2000. For the global average only, the UK Met Office HadCRUT4.6 dataset is used and the colour scale goes from -0.7°C to +0.7°C. The stripes are usually shown for the period 1901-2019 but this can be longer or slightly shorter depending on the location and whether the data is available & considered robust.


We are using present day country boundaries for the whole time period shown.”

Professor Ed Hawkins (University of Reading)
