About Us

our story

In 2009, three friends, all passionate about the landscape, history and culture of Andros, came together to form the Andros Research Center.

Our story begins in 2009 when three friends, researchers and activists in the fields of environment, culture and sustainable tourism decided to use the research they were undertaking for the benefit of Andros. They founded the non-profit organisation Center for Contemporary Research & Action for Andros – in short, the Andros Research Center – to conduct research and to transform it into good practices in order to protect and promote the environment and culture of Andros.
