Miloterranean wins one of the Bravo Awards 2017, and completion of this year’s educational programs

On May 25th, 2017, the Miloterranean initiative was conferred one of the Bravo Awards 2017 in the category Bravo Society. The distinction represents a major reward for an initiative aiming at the development of the island’s tourism product by utilizing its volcanic origin and rare geological features.


Also in May, this year’s educational programs of the Milos Mining Museum came to an end. They took place within the Museum’s premises, but also outside with the participation of the school children in the geological and cultural tours of Miloterranean.

Starting early this year, eleven Miloterranean trekkings were organised on the paths Nychia, Volcano, Sarakiniko as well as the Botanical Path. They were attended by more than 570 pupils of all levels and their teachers. On these walking tours the school children encountered rare geological phenomena as well as the island’s flora, learning the various species and the mechanisms the plants have developed in order to survive and propagate under the specific climatic conditions of Milos.

On August 25th thirty-five third grade pupils from Milos Elementary School took a tour through the Museum’s exhibition. Under the guidance of the program “Discover the Treasures of Milos”, they explored the exhibits and experienced the usefulness of the minerals, the “treasures” of the earth of Milos.

The children were accompanied by the Milos Mining Museum Director Mrs. Anna Vogli, and by Mr. George Petrakis, Head Forester of Imerys, the Company that sponsors the Museum’s educational programs.

We would like to thank the headmasters and teachers of the Primary Schools, the High School and the Vocational Senior High School of Milos for partaking in the Museum’s educational programs, hoping that our fruitful cooperation will continue during the upcoming school year with new educational activities and programs.
