Message from Stavros

I envision a world that does not need protecting. I envision a world that nature and people thrive. As an educator, it is hard not to get discouraged. The current state of the natural environment is even more sobering. Climate change, habitat destruction, species depletion, rising sea levels, pollution, mental and physical health problems, and the list goes on. Teaching about the formidable challenges can seem daunting, overwhelming, and, at times, simply hopeless. And despite our best efforts, things just seem to be getting worse. I want to leave Earth a better place than I found it. A question that has truly inspired was indicated by Simeon Ogonda, a youth development leader from Kenya: "Many of us often wonder what kind of planet we're leaving behind our children, but few ask the opposite: what kind of children are we leaving behind for our planet?"

As an environmentalist and sportsman, I want to respond, and at the same time encourage Generation Z to embrace the natural environment, including all human and non-human living things and spend time and play outdoors. Our future society should be lead by individuals who will adopt an Earth-centric leadership style, where the bonding between people and nature will start from early childhood. Essentially, the educational system should be "naturalized" as an antidote to the urbanization.

The time is now."
