Can we avoid global warming by protecting the Greek seas? The answer is obviously “yes”, and members of the “We Are Paris” initiative prove it in an interview with Anastasia Miliou, Research Director of the Archipelagos Institute of Marine Conservation.

“We Are Paris” is a project of the University of Brussels in Belgium, which explains the role of active citizens in stopping the rise of global temperatures. Selene Álvarez Peña and Sofie Vermaerke, students who complete their masters in environmental protection, arrived to Samos to prepare a documentary video about Archipelagos. The film will show how our researchers protect damaged ecosystems of the northeastern Mediterranean, which are crucial for mitigating the climate change.

The video is going to be published on on the 25th of November, just before the Climate Change Conference of the United Nations opens in the French capital. Together with “We Are Paris” and the University of Brussels we want to show that climate belongs to everybody – and it is our duty to protect it.
