Preface

This joint cultural Symposium, under the auspices of His Excellency Ambassador Aftab Seth, provides the opportunity to raise the awareness on important issues and to strengthen the bond between our two cultures. Deep historical roots is something both countries may delight in sharing, whilst simultaneously acknowledging the need for urgent action to be undertaken and, more importantly, actually processing the guidelines we must all follow for the future of our biocentric culture on this Planet.

Appreciation is expressed to the members of the B.I.O. youth committee, Anastasia Christou, Christos Efthimiopoulos, Michalis Peglis and Antonis Xanthos, for their contribution in the successful organisation of the Hellenic-Indian Symposium.
