members and alumnis,

Here in IAAS Greece we are more than happy to welcome you to this year’s amazing
and long
awaited EDM 2007/08. This is our first e
mail to you, it contains the first
necessary information about the EDM as we
ll as the application form and our
preliminary program. In the following weeks we will send you more information
about what to expect as we are finalizing our program and we are going to meet with
IAAS President Laura

for a preparation meeting on

October 5


As I mentioned before the program we are sending you is the preliminary program.
The final one is going to be more concrete and you will have it before your arrival,
but we will also keep you updated with the changes up to the day
of the EDM. The
most important thing that you should know is that the EDM will take place in 2 places
in Greece. The first part will take place in Aridea which is a beautiful area situated in
the North of Greece close to Thessaloniki ,which is the second b
iggest city of Greece,
and the second part will be in Athens, the capital of Greece. The unique combination
of the countryside and the urban landscape is going to make our EDM an
unforgettable experience. The organizing committee has decided to dedicate t
he first
part of our EDM in Aridea to environmental awareness and right now we are in
contact with several environment
concerned associations and groups in order to act
together for the relief of the environment and the forests, especially after the fires
destroyed a great part of Greece’s forests this summer and also caused the death of
many people. More analytical information will be sent to you soon. What is very
important is to state that that EDM is starting in Thessaloniki on the 27

of December

and it ends in Athens on the 3

of January.

Participation fee

After long conversations about it we agreed for the participation fee to be at
€.Don’t worry if you are no longer a student but still want to join our EDM!

Alumnis are welcome to our EDM and participation fee for alumnis is 190€.We have
extra work looking for sponsors to keep the fee that low but we would like to
welcome as many peop

obstacle to someone who would really like to participate. The participation fee

of December until the night of the

of January, all meals (3
meals a day
breakfast, lunch and dinner as stated in the
program) as well as local transport and the tickets for the night train from
