For the fourth consecutive year, we sponsor the Dodoni Festival

For one more year, fourth in a row, Energean supports the Dodoni Festival as a Sponsor. The Festival is taking place in the Dodoni Municipality of the Ioannina Prefecture, Western Greece. It's one of the most beautiful areas in the country!


LAKE VIROU                                                                                                           RIVER ACHERON, ADES GATES

The 4th Dodoni Festival will take place between the 29th of July until the 9th of August and its events will be hosted at the Ancient Theatre of Dodoni, one of the biggest theatres of Ancient Greece, as it could host up to 18,000 spectators, the Ancient Stadium of Dodoni, the Lake Virou and the Springs of River Acheron.

Energean, which participates in a JV with Repsol in hydrocarbon exploration in the Ioannina and Thesprotia prefectures, considers the Dodoni Festival to be a benchmark for cultural activities not only for the region of Epirus but for Greece in general and as an institution that significantly promotes the touristic profile of the region, something extremely important especially under the current adverse circumstances.

Mrs. Ilia Rigas, Head of Energean’s Corporate Social Responsibility, stated:

 

“We are happy to support the Dodoni Festival, as it represents an ideal example of fruitful collaboration between the stakeholders of a community. The Dodoni Festival aligns ideally with the strategy towards a sustainable development adopted and implemented by Energean, as it serves the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. Specifically, Goal 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities” (especially sub-goal 11.4 related to the efforts to protect and safeguard the world's cultural and natural heritage), as well as Goal 17 “Partnership for the Goals.

 

We are looking forward to one more successful event and the participation of fellow citizens from the Epirus Region as well as tourists, who we urge to follow all measures and precautions suggested by the authorities in respect of the COVID-19 pandemic”.

 

The Dodoni Festival is jointly organized by the Municipality of Dodoni and the Cultural Center of the Municipality of Dodoni, under the auspices and support of the Greek Parliament and the Ministry of Culture and Sports, and under the auspices of the Greek National Tourism Organisation.
