Greece Picks Up World’s Longest Relay for Climate Change

ATHENS – A 7,767 kilometer (4,826-mile) relay organized by The World Relay in partnership with the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and Carbon Copy, and is supported by UNESCO and UNFCCC in dealing with climate change made a stop in Greece.

In Greece, the relay began at the Floisvos Marina in Athens, where the baton was delivered to the Acron Aoton Trimaran cruises that will take it to Cyprus, said Amram Online.

The baton was carried by swimmer Christos Koromilas, accompanied by actor and ultramarathon runner Agis Emmanuel, who ran from Athens to Glasgow for the climate change initiative to highlight the global fight.

Nikos Petrou, President of HSPN said that the aim was to also create a human chain that will deliver a message from global youth with so much support it will be impossible to ignore.
