On 30 May, the emblematic Greek island of Delos -the cosmopolitan centre of the Mediterranean in antiquity, now an open museum- comes to life again!

For the first time in its thousands of years of history, Delos welcomes a classical music orchestra for a broadcast concert of an international scope and great symbolic value. The European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO), together with Ukrainian & Russian musicians,and soloists the Ukrainian born rising star Diana Tishchenko (violin) and Greek virtuoso Sokratis Sinopoulos (lyra) will perform the concert entitled “The [uncertain] Four Seasons”, a concert especially created to underscore the uncertainty about the future of our planet if we do not act urgently.

The concert will be projected in Campo San Lorenzo and in various European cities, Geneva, Monaco, Mykonos & Paros and in Megaron the Athens Concert Hall. The concert will be also live-streamed on ARTE, on the social-media platforms of Cultural and Technological institutions.

It will additionally be broadcast on ARTE’s Sunday TV concert on 5 June -17.25 (CET) in Germany and 18.25 (CET) in France. The concert will be available on arte.tv from 30th May until end of August and will then travel around the world. The event also marks the 30th anniversary of ARTE, the important European cultural channel, symbol of Franco-German friendship.

The ALPHA MISSION - ΔELOS concert is dedicated to the memory of Vangelis Papathanasiou who supported the World Human Forum from its inception. It is a co-production of the World Human Forum & ARTE in partnership with Europa Nostra, the Hellenic Space Center, the National Research Center for Natural Sciences Demokritos", the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, Megaron the Athens Concert Hall - and in collaboration with the Ephorate of Antiquities of Cyclades. The EUYO is artistic partner of the event.

This date will mark the official launch of ALPHA MISSION – ΔELOS. A collective initiative that combines the strengths of Mythology, Art and Space Technology to raise awareness globally about the urgent need for the regeneration of our planet.

"The [uncertain] Four Seasons” screening event in Venice is organised by TBA21–Academy's Ocean Space, Sumus-La Fucina del Futuro and Europa Nostra.

The concert is part of ALPHA MISSION - ΔELOS and a coproduction of ARTE & the World Human Forum.


NASAs ARTEMIS MISSION will take the first woman to the Moon by 2025, following the APOLLO MISSION which took the first man to the moon in 1969.

Delos is the island where, according to the myth, the twin gods Apollo and Artemis were born, and where light was born. For many centuries in antiquity, Delos was the cosmopolitan centre of the Mediterranean. Today, the whole island is an open museum and the ancient ruins on it are already affected by the climate crisis and rising sea level. Parallel to our quest to explore space, Delos -and the events connected to it- will be emblematic reminders that wings also need roots and that the healing of our planet should be a priority. NASA’s Artemis Mission, following the Apollo Mission, gives us the unique opportunity to understand that Humanity will not succeed in addressing the challenges we face unless we combine the wisdom of the past with the knowledge and possibilities of today, humanities with science, mythology, art and spirituality with space and technology.
