“What is your dream?” – this is for sure a question that everyone encounters at some point in their lives.  But what happens when people with common goals come together and make one D.R.E.A.M. come true? Let’s hear the story from the great people that helped it become reality.

As everything else, D.R.E.A.M. – Design and Recycling for Environmental Awareness and Motivation – started as an idea. How did this idea came up? The following interviews will tell the story of this innovative project.

It all started with R.A.D.I.Kal.A. and Hamid is sharing the very beginning of it in the following interview:

It does sound like a great idea! But how exactly is this an educational circle? Luckily, the D.R.E.A.M. volunteers had the chance to take a short interview of Anna, one of R.A.D.I.Kal.A.’s board members and asked her the same thing.


Of course, in today’s society, this sounds appealing, especially to young people that want to raise awareness about the environment and want to get involved and make a difference.

And here is where K.A.NE. comes in the story and makes it accessible for these young people to get involved in such a process. Filaretos,  the Director of the organisation is explaining how did one important step of the circle became an Erasmus+ project that brought together young people from 7 countries.

It was indeed innovative! And the best part is: the hard work of the volunteers was rewarded when the boat was sailing! Not only that, but they were the first ones that proved the practicality of this great idea!


With the help of our partners from Messinian Boats and Bougas School, the results had a good impact on the local community, in particular and they were exited to see it happening. But, let’s hear Mr. Bougas’ opinion about being a part of the project, to get the idea:

And now, let’s see the whole process of the boats making:

With this positive attitude, we are determined to build more boats in the upcoming years in order to complete the educational circle and see more and more recycled boats at the Nautical Club of Kalamata.
