Holistic learning tools and experiential educational methods are invested in our work. We invite people and groups of every age and walk of life to participate in workshops, trainings, retreats, volunteering schemes, outreach programmes, festivals, community gatherings and experience the power and inspiration of living in Unity with the Self, Nature and co-humans attuned to the truth, joy and generosity. "Korogonas Ark" constitutes an initiative which listens to the call of our era and responds to it: low eco-print, plant-based whole-food, empathy, inner peace, self-knowledge techniques, respect to every manifestation of life upon mother Earth, peaceful activism, community building (singing, circles, action, education, communication).

Our aim is to beautify the so-far-undeveloped hill so that locals can benefit from such a place in an urban area. After the completion of our project, visiting the hill will make people - and especially young children - recommit to the conservation of nature as well as raise awareness to environmental problems in the area. This hill can become an example of how each one of us can make a world of difference if only we take action. Our 10-year-old students visited the hill as part of the preparatory work needed. They were asked to make a field survey, writing reports on the specific problems and mapping the hill. Then, they were asked to present their reports to all students and prioritise the problems by voting for the most urgent. In groups, they made suggestions and offered solutions. The last stage will involve the students walking out of the classroom for a second time to take action. Some of the activities planned are the cleaning up of the hill and the hiking trails, putting up bins and signs for recycling, creating picnic areas by constructing wooden benches and tables, planting of trees and plants (an agricultural engineer will teach us all about the area's flora). At the same time, the students will run a campaign so that all the students of our school as well as the town council and the community will be informed on this environmental programme.

We will make use of whatever is available around our school and 'upcycle' it. We are planning to make our own benches, frames, tables, working places,boards! Turn our school into an enjoyable place to be!

We will start with the history of the monument and st. Isidoros' life. Then we will write down the damage done by people or time to the monument and we will contact the local community, as well as the authorities for information or help to bring the problem to light.
