On 15 June 2017 The Guardian reported:
Tiny Tilos, in the Dodecanese, is a pioneering nature reserve. Now, Greece's 'green island' is set to be powered by renewable energy. Tilos owes its extraordinary biodiversity to a network of underground springs that feed five wetlands -- but also to the late mayor, Tassos Aliferis, a committed environmentalist who earned Tilos its reputation as 'Greece's green island'. The current mayor, Maria Kamma, continues to champion sustainable development, and human rights. She has extended an open invitation to refugee families to settle on Tilos, working with the NGO SolidarityNow and the UNHCR to establish sheltered accommodation, language classes,and mentoring schemes to help asylum-seekers set up organic farming businesses in partnership with locals.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
'We want to revive traditions that were dying out due to a dwindling population, like making cheese and gathering medicinal herbs,' says Kamma. 'By integrating refugees, we can boost the local economy and encourage eco-tourism.' ...
Soon Tilos could become even greener: it's set to be the first island in the Mediterranean powered by wind and solar energy.
