SPGH hosted a research-informed discussion with Mr. Thodoris Georgakopoulos on demographics, climate change and other major forces that will shape the population and physical environment of Greece in the next decades. The presentation and discussion were based on findings from studies conducted by the Greek think tank DiaNEOsis.

SPGH was founded in the mid1970s with the initial charge of preserving the Greek physical and cultural environment on the belief that preservation of the Greek heritage is intimately linked to the preservation of Greece. The issue remains critical to our mission.
