We invite you to a festive parade, which will bring to life the vibrant nature of the Kifissos river with respect to its memory.
Born in the mountains of Penteli and Parnitha, Kifissos flows through Athens before reaching the Mediterranean, giving life and soul to the Attika basin for millennia. The river has been the home of many varieties of plants, birds, and fish and has had a crucial role in the formation of the Athenian cultural landscape.
However, today, it suffers from exploitation from our modern civilization. It has suffocated within dense urban growth, been confined to a canal made from concrete and has been covered in part under a busy highway. Now in place of flowing water, we see a flow of heavy traffic, making it difficult to even remember that it is a river.
This Sunday, we will meet at the Agricultural University of Athens, walk all the way to the river to recall its connection to the school, and finish with a rowing procession.
Let’s all flow into Kifissos together!
