As an exclusive Conference Center, the OAC is devoted to the cultivation of the spirit of dialogue and has a 50-year-experience on organizing and hosting international Conferences
The Institute of Theology and Ecology (IThE) emphasizes the issues of educating young pupils about environmental issues, by accentuating the importance of the OAC’s Museum of Cretan Herbs
The OAC and IThE organize the following actions in order to highlight the importance of Cretan herbs with the participation of groups who desire to experience the beauty of Cretan plants
Every year since 1996, students of the School for Garden and Landscape Architecture in Rheinland-Pfalz (Germany), in cooperation with the OAC, work on a natural stone pathway
In all the OAC’s activities, the key is the sustainability and the achievement of the maximum possible savings of resources and energy. As a result, special seminars are organized by the IThE
As the OAC is a Welfare Non-Profit Foundation, we are more than thankful for any financial support from those who appreciate our efforts, especially regarding our sustainable vision for the environment.
