5 Messinia schools taking part in «EDUFOOTPRINT» : Five Messinian schools have been chosen to be part of  the transnational program EU funded «EDUFOOTPRINT» which aims to record the environmental footprint left by the operation of schools and to follow the small interventions designed to reduce this. Antonio Zonta said that «EDUFOOTPRINT» aims to raise awareness and educate users of school premises about the effective management of energy consumption for their operation. The program will be implemented at the same time in schools in Attica and five other Mediterranean countries, and when completed, a plan should be developed that can be used in general by Mediterranean schools and other public buildings, always with the aim of reducing carbon dioxide emissions and environmental footprint. efxini gr (May 2017)
