Helping Stray Dogs in Thessaloniki
The project aims to help people with the overwhelming choice that they can face when deciding to adopt a stray dog. The presentation categorizes different personalities and shows what kind of dog would be best suited for them.

Bringing life back to the Seih Sou Forest
The main area of focus for this project, is the Seih Sou forest near Thessaloniki. During the research it was found out that one main problem is the pollution caused by plastic bags, plastic bottles, glasses and other garbage that people leave in the forest. There are many areas of the forest without trees, due to fires or other natural disturbances. Many problems have been also caused in the ecosystem, and if it continues like this the animal population will decrease. In order for the problem to be solved effectively, a field trip will be organized, so students can visit a part of the forest that is burnt and initially clean it from all the waste people have made. New trees will be planted to bring life back to the forest parts that are currently dead.
