Dialogos

We are not just a Greek language school & learning Centre. We do care about environment. We also worry about the rise of intolerance and fanaticism. For this reason we have established “DIalogos” a non-profit organization that promotes low scale projects and actions based on volunteering. Dialogos is a local organization. Its headquarters are on the island of Ikaria and runs the Ikarian Centre’s campus in Arethousa. Dialogos’ initiatives aim to motivate people, mainly local people of Ikaria, to protect their environment. “Dialogos” also aims to motive Greek and Turks living in both sides of the borders to go beyond prejudices, intolerance  and fanaticism and start a dialogue between them.

At the same time, help us to keep the paths clean and open to hikers and protect the unique landscape of the area. Arethousa is located at the centre of Ikaria and has always been the crossroads of the footpaths that joined the two sides of the island.
