Say YES to climate action
through civic service!

This year, as Greek communities around the world commemorate the famous “OXI” Day on October 28th, Ecogenia invites Greeks to once again unite their voices in saying oxi/no to the challenges they face today – no to climate change, no to unemployment, no to brain-drain. 

Echoing the spirit of resilience that the nation has showcased historically and with the objective of highlighting the solutions rather than the problems, we reverse the narrative by turning Oxi into a loud and bold YES! Yes to climate action, Yes to employment opportunities for all, Yes to elevating Greece’s eager talent. And most importantly, YES to civic engagement as a catalyst for mobilizing young Greeks to achieve these goals.

Support Ecogenia achieve this vision by investing in a sustainability-minded and climate-active youth for Greece. 

a generation
with vision.

We aspire to be a national program providing employment
and training opportunities for young people through a service year model.

Ecogenia is a non-profit in Greece.

All of our service year programming will address pressing community needs related to sustainable development.

We are currently developing our pilot programs for 2021-2024 to test this proven service-year model from abroad and apply it in the Greek context.
