what we accomplished

What we accomplished in 2022

Another year is coming to an end. During this year we moved forward day by day, set goals, implemented them and continued to the next ones. Each of those goals was unique for us. It commanded all our attention and demanded all our energy. But, with our eyes always focused on that unique goal, we usually don’t realize the totality of the actions we have carried out. So, the time has come for the reckoning, the moral and mental satisfaction for what we have accomplished in 2022.

Seminars, workshops, services

We contributed to the personal and professional development of locals with seminars and workshops. We organized the seminars: Public Speaking by the actor Miltiadis Fiorentzis, Internet Safety, and Sports Psychology for Athletes and Coaches. We also carried out a theater workshop with Kostas Gakis, a painting workshop for children, as part of the “Art-capsule” program, and a Choral Workshop. We offered career guidance, coaching, mentoring and career counseling services, and free mental health and self-care services.

Exhibitions, performances, presentations

We organized the photo exhibition “Athlesis”, promoting the ideals of sport and giving a platform to 7 photographers with ties to the region to present their work.

We brought two high-quality performances to Poros, “The Small Tailor of Words” for the children, presented by the theater group Mikros Notos, and “The Story of a Dog Called Faithful” with Kostas Gakis, for the adults. For the children, we also organized two presentations of the children’s book “Do books actually talk?” by the author Eleni Petala, on Poros and Troizina. We also contributed to a Christmas fest for the children of the Primary School of Galatas.

Conservation, support, promotion actions

We carried out five beach cleaning and waste recording actions, on Vagionia of Poros and on Agia Sotira of Galatas, as part of the citizens science program “Adopt a beach“. We also participated in the fight against the Areas of Organized Aquaculture Development (ΠΟΑΥ) of Poros, with the awareness-raising action “έlα Vagionia”, as well as with posts aimed at collecting signatures against the industrial development of aquaculture on Poros.

We supported the educational community by donating technological equipment to local schools and free membership cards to teachers and students.

We created the “Sokakia” game and played it with people from different parts of the world, to introduce them to a more unknown side of Poros in a playful way. Additionally, we highlighted the local area through articles on local sites and activities, products and arts.


We have collaborated with organizations and individuals to support local efforts linked to Katheti’s purposes. These collaborations include:

  • the children’s book presentation “Do books actually talk?” to the children of Troizina, in collaboration with the Cultural Action of Troizina
  • the visit of the WWF Youth Group to Galatas
  • our participation in the INCIRCLE program for the promotion of circular economy
  • the contribution to hosting Belgian scouts who offered volunteer work in our area
  • our participation in Saronia festival with a kiosk
  • the painting exhibition “In the same waters“, with the painting duet of father Christos Papadopoulos and daughter Gina Papadopoulou
  • the filming of the movie “Kyuka“, with the production company Heretic
  • the 1st Methana Crossing, with Volcanotrails.gr, with the participation of around 100 people from various parts of Greece
  • the “Art-capsule”, with the Municipal Development Enterprise (ΔΗΚΕΔΗΤ) and the Children’s Centers for Creative Activities (ΚΔΑΠ) of Troizinia and Methana Municipality, under the auspices and with the partial financial support of the Ministry of Culture
  • and the Christmas fest with the Parents & Guardians Association of Galatas Primary School.

And we keep going, thanks to the contribution of the people that support us!
