NEO Steering Committee

The birth of NEO

In 2008 Stockholm University approached TEMES S.A., a premier developer of luxury mixed-use resorts, with a view to establishing an environmental observatory in Messinia in the southern Peloponnese.

Messinia was chosen on account of the region’s unique climatic and geomorphological characteristics, which make it an ideal location for a climate change research observatory. Costa Navarino was specifically selected because of the developer’s strong commitment to preserving the natural environment, as demonstrated by its implementation of advanced and in many cases pioneering environmental management practices through all stages of the development.

Preparatory work carried out by the three parties to the project –  Stockholm University, the Academy of Athens and TEMES – led in December 2009 to the signing of a memorandum of cooperation.

What is ΝΕΟ

Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), the outcome of cooperation between Stockholm University, the Academy of Athens and TEMES S.A., the developer of Costa Navarino, is dedicated to the study of climate change and its impacts on the natural environment and human activities in the Mediterranean.

Located at Costa Navarino, the new sustainable tourism destination in the Mediterranean, NEO is fast becoming a dynamic hub for modern environmental research, where scientists from all over the world are able to exchange knowledge and ideas, while at the same time developing new research tools and methods.

The establishment of NEO is a very important step toward strengthening Swedish-Greek cooperation in the area of environmental protection and sustainable development. The operation of NEO presents to the world a real example of how the academic community and the private sector can work together to promote sustainability and apply the basic concepts of the green economy.
