On the 15th and 17th of November, the Network of Entities and Citizens for the Protection of Agrafas organized informational events with the presence of foreign and Greek press correspondents in order to highlight the negative impacts on the ecosystem and biodiversity of the mountain range from the planned industrial installation. It would also appear that these facilities undermine the mild tourism development of the area. “Watch the video of the event”

Save the Agrafa


A few days ago the Minister of Environment and Energy signed two permits for the installation of wind farms on the historical ridge of Nialas Agraphon.
The two large wind turbine installations are to be built in the unspoiled peaks of Agrafa in the highest altitude of Greece and around 1600 to 2000 meters (!!!) in a clean and protected Natura area, with incalculable negative consequences. If this work is done, it is the beginning of the flattening of the heart of South Pindos as it is the first of a series of wind farms that cover 80% (!) Of ridges from Evritania to Argithea !.
For the transport of huge wind turbines, away from suitable road and electricity transmission lines, it will require the opening of endless roads and the construction of high-voltage overhead lines in dense pine forests and virgin alpine meadows, in landscapes with large slopes and rivers, with enormous landscape effects and to the least studied flora and fauna of the area. A section of the 3.8 km high-voltage transmission line runs through the “landscape of special natural beauty” (TIFK) of Lake Plastira area, introducing the risk of fire in areas that until now were not aware of such serious hazards.
EOSK, naturally, opposes this environmental crime and will react with all its might.
In cooperation with the Network of Citizens and Agents for the Protection of the Agraph, a series of actions are being prepared with the principle of collecting signatures through AVAAZ and preparing for appeal to the Council of State.

We all vote here and disseminate it !!

We will not allow the destruction of Agrafa in the name of a supposedly “green development”!
