The “Heliotropio” Social & Environmental Action Organization was supported by the Foundation in implementing special educational programmes of therapeutic gardening to connect children with disabilities with nature. Together with the children was created a garden to regenerative, organic and biodynamic cultivation standards; through a combination of educational exercises and games, the children had the opportunity to get in touch with nature while learning about teamwork as well as themselves. Moreover, the actions bring together children with and without disabilities, who are thus able to know one another and play together in nature.
“Heliotropio” is active in designing and running special educational programmes for people with and without disabilities through a comparative approach to educational / training programmes for different levels of education and different disabilities. It is the sole institution in Greece to offer special environmental programmes for children with different disabilities and continues for several years now to organize innovative educational actions for children, young people and adults.
