The event was organized by the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO), an agency set up 10 years ago by the academy, the University of Stockholm and the company TEMES, which owns the Costa Navarino resort in the Peloponnese. Organizers said they aimed to turn NEO into a “scientific hub.” [Yannis Kolesidis/EPA]
