  1. On behalf of the International Organising Committee – Australia – For The Restitution Of The Parthenon Marbles I extend my best wishes to you in this important venture. Children must be educated about this most important issue and the planned event provides an ideal opportunity for awareness to be raised.

    • The Acropolis Museum has noteworthy educational events both for adults and children all the year round. They usually offer these events in both English and Greek sometimes in other languages too. They really deserve to be praised!
