Target Audience

The majority of activities taking place in this area are centered on our city’s youth (schools and sports grounds). The fact that so many educational and sporting activities take place there, was the reason we chose it for the implementation of our project.



The process of implementation of the project, briefly followed the following process:

  1. Project Study (2011)
  2. Project submission for approval (2011)
  3. Approval and acceptance of funding from the Municipality of Peristeri (2013)
  4. Competitions for selecting tenderers and awarding Subprojects in accordance with the approved schedule of the Act.

Task 1: 2014 -2016
Task 2: 2014 -2016
Task 3: 2015
Task 4: 2015 -2016


This large environmental project includes: 28,000 square meters of bioclimatic interventions, 2 new squares, 2 modern playgrounds, the planting of 760 tall deciduous trees, walking areas, shady places to rest, the widening of sidewalks, geothermal pumps for cooling, modern lighting solutions for energy savings, and a network of meteorological stations.

Impact on Society

Our basic goal was not only to improve the area’s microclimate but also make it a beautiful and functional place to live, in accordance to the principles of bioclimatic design and sustainability.

Initiative Location

The total area in the northern part of our city (which is called “Chorafa”), where the bioclimatic study was implemented, is approximately 120,000 square meters and is a densely populated part, bounded by the streets: Ioanninon, Pefkon, Imathias-Kaktou, Kedron.

The basic measurements covering the measuring grid is:

  • Ultraviolet radiation (UV).
  • Solar radiation.
  • Outdoor temperature/ ambient temperature console.
  • Air humidity/ Relative air humidity.
  • Barometric trend.
  • Barometric pressure.
  • heat index.
  • dew point.
  • precipitation/ rainfall rate.
  • wind/ wind speed prevails.
