The Biopolitics International Organization (B.I.O.) is an non-profit, non-governmental organization, founded in Athens, in 1985. Over the course of its history, BIO.has been promoting a shift from an anthropocentric to a bio centric system of values in society, in order to curb environmental destruction and place appreciation of the environment at the core of every human endeavour. With Greece as its operating basis, BIO.has gained international acclaim, and leading representatives in 120 countries currently support its ideals and have dedicated their efforts to their world-wide propagation. BIO.has held numerous international conferences and symposia, paving the way for the development of new strategies to secure environmental protection as a primary societal aim. BIO.focuses on a wider scope of environmental preservation – one which integrates the environment into all social and economic schemes – providing guidelines that will enrich environmental protection strategies with a view to the future.
