Greece celebrated European Heritage Days from September 23 – 25. Our local reporters Manthos Velogiannis and Sophia Panagiotopoulou made an interesting report on a museum that is recycling and reusing their old materials to produce new and original merchandise.
The celebrations in Greece focused on Sustainable heritage – ‘Preserving the past for future generations’. Manthos and Sophia visited the Herakleidon museum for a workshop on reusing recyclable materials and converting them into daily-use objects such as tote bags, folders and laptop bags.
