Project Location

Τhe Project is being implemented in Attica, Greece. The Municipalities participating the project are Aspropyrgos and Papagos-Cholargos. The fact that the specific Municipalities are totally different in terms of their environmental and socioeconomic status, gives great added value to the project since, the project’s results may be applied to every Greek Municipality after the end of the project implementation.

Aspropyrgos Municipality

Aspropyrgos is located 15 km northwest of the city center of Athens in the Thriasian Plain. It is 5 km northeast of Eleusis, near the Saronic Gulf coast. Mount Parnitha forms its northern border, and the Aigaleo hills its southeastern border. The Eleusis Military Airbase lies to its west. The main street is Dimokratias ('Democracy') Avenue. Aspropyrgos can be accessed from the Motorway 6 (Eleusis - Athens) and the Motorway 65 (Ano Liosia - Aspropyrgos). The industrial area is in the southeastern part of Aspropyrgos. The Aspropyrgos railway station is served by Proastiakos trains from the Athens International Airport to Kiato (Peloponnese).
