My Generation: Vasilies and Athens

Where did you study abroad, live, or have lived?

Athens, Greece

Was there anything related to environmental awareness or sustainability worth sharing?

The Metro was great, underground subway, fast, reliable, cheap along with the above ground tram which was, informative and interactive. I took part in a research project that measured the UV rays, among other things during peak sun hours of the day, as an awareness to the public.

Is there one thing that you do in your daily life that can be attributed to sustainability?

I would ride my bike, take the public transportation, and go to the local food markets.

Why do you think Sustainability or environmental awareness is so important to our generation?

Sustainability is important for our generation because we need to work hard at restoring what our elders have successfully destroyed.

What degree, have you received or are currently seeking, or what field of work are you looking to jump into?

I am receiving a bachelors in arts with the University of Washington’s College of the Built Environments, under their urban planning department, titled “Community Environment Planning”.

If you could travel to one place in the world where would it be, and why?

I would travel to Ios, an Cyclades island in the Mediterranean, Greece. Why? I was born in Athens, but the real greece, lifestyle, climate, topography, food, etc. lies in IOS. There is a cliff overlooking the bay and the endless blue Mediterranean waters, a hammock, and a gentle breeze. here, I could die.

If you could be one animal in the world what would it be? 

I would be the Great White Shark.

    I found this peice uplifting and agricultural. Truely work of a mature adolescent Shakespeare. I too believe sustainability is a key element for todays population as a collective. The images show the unprecedented yet unique beauty of Greeces demographic. One can only acknowledged that without invasive determination to mantain these natural elements. In hindsight we’ve come accustomed to a traditional lack of awareness to these issues.
