HELMEPA Cadets under the auspices of the General Secretariat for Youth

The Hellenic Marine Environment Protection AssociationΗELMEPA is glad to announce that the General Secretariat for Youth of the Hellenic Ministry for Employment and Social Security places under its auspices the “HELMEPA Cadets”, the new category of volunteers-members for youth 13-30 years old.

The aim of this initiative is to provide the opportunity to youth throughout Greece to become informed about the importance of the marine environment for our country and life on our planet in general, shipping, scientific research and the development of new technologies for the sustainable use of marine resources, as well as opportunities presented for pursuing careers in marine-related professions.

At the same time, HELMEPA Cadets are invited to take part in voluntary activities for the protection of coasts and seasThis way, young people in various parts of Greece who in the past had become members of the “HELMEPA Junior” program, may now continue their environmental activity as liaisons between HELMEPA and local communities in their areas.  Visit the program’s website 

HELMEPA and AUSMEPA (here) are both under the umbrella of INTERMEPA, the International Marine Environment Protection Association (here). Each MEPA employs regionally relevant methods of involving schools and community in the protection of the worlds oceans.
