Navarino Environmental Observatory awarded at Ecopolis 2015

Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), a cooperation between Stockholm University (the Bolin center), Academy of Athens and the Greek ecotourism company, TEMES, was distinguished at this year's Ecopolis Awards that focus on Environmental Awareness. Winning in the category "Environmental Work", NEO was acknowledged for its research work on climate change in the Mediterranean. ECOPOLIS Awards promote environmental awareness and engage the social participation of enterprises, associations and all involved stakeholders in undertaking or supporting actions oriented to this cause.

Located at Costa Navarino, Messinia, Greece, NEO, is dedicated to research and education on the climate and environment of the Mediterranean region. The research station, which began operating in the fall of 2010, has become a dynamic hub where scientists from all over the world conduct frontline research, develop new tools and methods, as well as meet to exchange knowledge and ideas.

The prize, a statuette, was presented at a formal ceremony in Athens on Friday 5 June. Giorgos Maneas, NEO's station manager, was there and received the award.
