  • [01] ERT promo sponsor for 'Patras 2006'

    The Hellenic Radio/Television Organisation (ERT) on Sunday officially became a promotional sponsor for the "Patras Cultural Capital of Europe 2006", with the signing of a relvant agreement by ERT president Christos Panagopoulos and Patras 2006 organisation executive committee coordinator Christos Roilos, in the western port city of Patras.

    Speaking at a press conference, Panagopoulos said it was a great honor for ERT to promote and cover the Patras 2006 institution and events, adding that he was especially happy that his birthtown of Patras, would serve as the cultural capital of Europe during his presidency at ERT.

    In addition to the sponsorship, Panagopoulos announced that even greater projection of the institution itself was being mulled, so that the benefits would be even greater for the institution but also for ERT itself.

    One idea was to film a period serial focussing on the city of Patras and the life of its inhabitants in the early 20th century, when the Achaia capital was flourishing.

    He further said that ERT's participation, with audiovisual material, in an exhbition to be held in 2006 was also being examined.

    Roilos said that the promotional sponsorship was budgeted at 2 million euros, adding that the Patras Cultural Capital of Europe 2006 institution was already being projected, as of this year, on ERT's three television networks, five radio frequencies, regional radio stations, satellite channel, website, and periodical.

    In addition to the braodcast of the Patras 2006 artisitc events by ERT, ERT's own orchestras would take part in three events, while ERT would be declared a grand sponsor of the institution.

    [02] Bologna Univ. honours Patriarch Vartholomeos

    ROME (ANA/L. Hatzikiriakos) - Bologna Uiversity on Saturday proclaimed Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholemeos honourary professsor "for the sensitivity he has shown in his struggles for the protection of the envoronment."

    The official ceremony took place in Ravenna, at the Church of San Vitale.

    On Friday evening, he gave a speech at Bologna University, which is the oldest in Italy, on the theme "The environment and its protection".

    Addressing the conference the Ecumenical Patriarch said:"There are people who want to live at the expense of others. Today, where development has shaped the world into an international community, the harmful practice of dumping waste, which Roman law prohibitted, does not simply harm our neighbours, but all people. Under these conditions, our science obliges us to accept the Christian truth of the unity of the future of mankind. Furthermore, consciousness is the unique force with which man can oppose pollution. And it is in this direction the Patriarchate is working. "

    "We want to convince individuals and governments, by using moral arguments which can be touching. We want to convince people that God gave us the order to work and protect Earth. God created an ecological balance. Its disruption threatens the coming generations and our conscience does not allow us to act in this direction," Vatholomeos added.
