Today, with great pleasure, we award children, young elementary school students from all over Greece who took part in the pan-Hellenic painting competition, organized by the Museum in memory of Niki Goulandris, on the theme of Greek wildflowers. The initiative of the Museum is particularly important, because it raises the awareness of very young people on the issues of nature protection and the environment. We have to look to the past and realize how we have behaved in Nature, to wonder if we have respected the Environment. It is a turn in the past that can ensure a better future for these children. We dishonored the land, as Pikionis used to say. And we have to correct this immediately, so that there will be a next day. The fact that 1600 children from all grades of primary school from all parts of our country participated in the competition is very encouraging. Indicates the sensitivity of children, but also of their families. And they deserve congratulations to the young students who through their brushes and paints us
