The Earth Charter Affiliate in Greece, the University of Crete, has been working with the Earth Charter since 2010. An intern at Earth Charter International helped to set up the Earth Charter Greece website and initiate activity there through the University of Crete.
Led by Professor Nelly Kostoulas-Makrakis, Earth Charter Greece organized a variety of activities in Greece to disseminate the Earth Charter in 2014. In September, she presented the Earth Charter at a workshop with the Greek Ministry of Education to assist implementation of the Earth Charter into the 344 primary schools in Athens. At the end of 2014, the University of Crete officially endorsed the Earth Charter at a ceremony attended by 30 people, and is in the process of introducing it to its faculty. Professor Kostoulas-Makrakis taught a course in which the 30 students worked on Earth Charter implementation in primary schools.
