CommonLAWgic

supports fairly balanced, inclusive & sustainable ideas

Logic

Logic ( from the Greek λογική logikē) is the formal systematic study of the principles of valid inference and correct reasoning. Logic examines general forms which arguments may take, which forms are valid, and which are fallacies. Logic is studied in argumentation theory and rhetoric. Logic was established as a discipline in philosophy by Aristotle.

So… CommonLAWgic, nowadays, addresses Common Logic from the perspective of law, as systematic study of fairly balanced, inclusive and sustainable solutions from and for the shipping sector, as a result of interaction with society.

Because “Common logic is not so common”. Voltaire (1694-1778)

   The Mayor of Piraeus and ECOMASYN supported  “Let’s do it Greece 2015”!

The voluntary nationwide waste cleanup campaign “Let's do it Greece 2015” (www.letsdoitgreece.org) was successfully accomplished on Sunday, April 26th, 2015, for the 4th consecutive year. “Let's do it World” volunteer cleanup movement, first evolved in 2008 in Estonia and then spread as the largest and fastest growing volunteer environmental campaign internationally, with the participation of 108 countries and 8 million volunteers (http://www.letsdoitworld.org). People from every part of the globe participate in the campaign by cleaning, on one particular day, their cities, their neighborhoods, parks, forests, beaches and riverbanks, conveying a message of positive activism for the volunteer protection of the natural and urban environment. Mrs. Yanna Pavlopoulou (COMMONLAWGIC), as founding Supporter and Steering Team member of “Let’s do it Greece”, explained -at a joint press Conference with the Mayor of Piraeus, Mr. Yannis Moralis - (photo no 1) the aims of their action: “Let’s do it” internationally branded, voluntary campaign takes place for the fourth time in Greece in multiple places but on the same day. Our “zero-budget” campaign managed to inspire “self-organized” volunteer cleanups throughout Greece, as an alternative way of action against existing environmental problems. As many as 1970 volunteer civil society and public organizations joined to support our initiative. We expect to motivate and “seed” our message to 38.000 volunteers at 500 cleanups around Greece, through social media networks, our website and “word of mouth” peer influence.”

 

Mrs. Pavlopoulou and Nikos Kioussis invited the citizens of Piraeus to actively join for ONE DAY “Let’s do it Greece 2015” with families, colleagues and friends. Mr. Yannis Moralis symbolically promised (by co-signing their “t-shirt” that already bared the signature of many prominent volunteers) to support their initiative, providing volunteer executives & municipal resources in order to effectively coordinate cleanup actions in 13 sites all around Piraeus! (photo no 2).

The Piraeus Mayor undoubtedly kept his promise, actively attending every single cleanup, escorted by his family and friends! The voluntary cleanup at the ancient fort of Peiraiki coastline (Piraeus) joined many members of the newly founded consortium ECOMASYN* namely volunteers from OCEANKING, C&A KASSIDIARIS, SPANOPOULOS GROUP, KAMINCO, SGL ENGINEERING, GKC REPAIRS, ARCO, RINA, COMMONLAWGIC, P. KOKKINIS, DL AUTOMATION, KOPOUKIS. They supported this CSR action and enjoyed a meaningful Sunday ECOMASYN gathering.
