Thankfully, I can tell you without hesitation that my time in ARCHELON was nothing less than amazing. One of the best decisions of my life! As far as I have seen, many people call it a perspective-changing or even life-changing experience.
On 26th - 29th October 2017, ARCHELON was present at the 15th International Convention on Tourism and Culture of Amorgos and the 8th Amorgos Film Festival at Amorgos Island. More than 100 attendants of all kinds of backgrounds, important film producers from 23 countries worldwide, journalists, students and representatives of cultural institutes were present.
EVS Program continues to offer ARCHELON the chance to host volunteers from other European Countries for 2017. This year another 3 volunteers have been able to meet new people and volunteers from all over the world with different cultural backgrounds and share the common experience of ARCHELON. ACHELON is the place to be for gaining a lot of friends, participating in a project for a good cause as well as feeling like a second home. Please see below their thoughts about how they combined living in a foreign country as EVS Volunteers and how ARCHELON affected their lives.
The project has already begun since September 2016. It is a European LIFE project, in which ARCHELON is one of the main Beneficiaries and represents Greece. Altogether 9 beneficiaries from 6 countries (Greece, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Cyprus) are participating jointly to protect nests in nesting areas using new technologies
