The exhibition “Earth’s enduring gifts”, hosted in the Teloglion Foundation of Art from May 18 until September 30, 2015, aims at highlighting Greek nature and biodiversity not only as a timeless resource but also as a source of inspiration for human wellbeing and the promotion of social life and prosperity, civilization and the sciences. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to follow a fascinating journey in time and place starting from Prehistoric Thera, passing from ancient Macedonia and ending today. Archaeological exhibits combined with rich visual and educational material demonstrate the timeless value of the Earth’s enduring gifts and present modern research approaches for preserving and valorizing the biodiversity of Greece.
