Review of Muğla Metropolitan Municipality Orchestra Concert at Fethiye Culture Centre
On 20th January 2017; a cool but dry winter's evening, Fethiye's Cultural Centre was host to Muğla Metropolitan Municipality Orchestra, and their wonderful New Year classical concert.
Inspired by his research into the ancient and antique history of southern Turkey, local author Birol Ganioğlu has written the Soothsayer of Thelmessos trilogy of novels.
Originally published in the Turkish language, the first book of the series, Mother Syessa (a Historical and Mythological novel set in the Lycian Civilisation in the first century B.C.) is now available to read in English.
The Sustainable Living Film Festival was celebrated in 20 towns and cities across Turkey, including Fethiye, on the weekend of November 18th-20th. 25 short and full-length documentaries were collated in the festival programme, all of which were thought-provoking and often challenging.
What is clear from all of these films, is that the responsibility to literally save our planet, our race and our habitats, lies with each individual world citizen. We must do much more - individually and collectively - to stop climate change, end the reliance on fossil fuels, and work towards 100% recycling and zero landfill use.
