Ecumenical Patriarch in Kalamata
Σύνταξη/επιμέλεια από τον/την Νίκος Αγγελίδης   
Bartholomew, who is known as the "Green Patriarch" for his environmental initiatives, was made a professor of the TEI's department of Organic and Greenhouse Crops and Floriculture during a ceremony at the TEI's amphitheater during an international environmental symposium on the theme "Protection of the Environment as a source of true life and sustainable development".
The ceremony was attended by deputy foreign minister Spyros Kouvelis, Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece, the political and military leaders of Messinia prefecture, and the TEI professors.
Addressing the Ecumenical Patriarch, TEI president Andreas Kanakis paid tribute to the "servant of theology, academic professor, cleric and Ecumenical Patriarch, who contributes to the promotion of the unity of the pan-Orthodox Church in advancing the inter-faith dialogue, and also the Greek Patriarch whom the TEI declares an honorary professor for his immense service to Hellenism and Orthodoxy and also his contribution to ecology".
Opening the symposium, Bartholomew noted that the century that passed has been the most violent in the history of humanity, a century of indescribable brutality of man towards his fellow man, but also of unprecedented barbarity to the natural environment.
After two bloody World Wars, he continued, today a third world war was taking place against nature.
On Sunday afternoon, Bartholomew was made an honorary citizen of Kalamata, by unanimous decision of the city's Municipal Council, during a ceremony at the City Hall that was attended by Kouvelis, and the city's and prefecture's officials.
