“We do not own our world, we are a part of it”
A photographic account of a life changing experience.
In order to celebrate the World Environment Day on the 5th June 2019, the Green Project organisation presents in the context of the Athens Photo Festival 2019, the original photography material produced during an extraordinary environmental journey in the summer of 2019 in Australia, from Melbourne to Perth. It records the importance of the co–existence of the Renewable energy technology innovation and the traditional environmental knowledge of Australian Aborigines, within the UNESCO Biosphere Reserves. The in-depth knowledge of Australian best environmental practices could become a valuable source of inspiration in developing Renewables in Greece, as well as in preventing environmental disasters like the wildfires which devastated Attica, last year.
From the 5th up to the 31st August 2018, 26 never-ending days and nights packed with spectacular images out of this world. 5 federated states, i.e. Tasmania Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia. 2 federal territories, i.e. Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory. 13.110 kilometers of driving eco-friendly motor homes with solar panels, on snow and ice, through rivers and mud, near marine ecosystems, across the desert and droughty lands, tropical rainforests and bushlands, along glaciation and alpine areas, etc.
We believe in the power of photography to change our world!
