Abstract: With a view towards sustainable development via innovative communication strategies, this article examines the potential of establishing an Environmental Awareness Centre (EAC) for sustainability on Skyros Island, Greece. The goal of the proposed EAC is to promote responsible environmental behaviour and activate citizens in environmental decision-making. The focus of this work is an extensive literature review, attempting to collect all relevant information and research on education for sustainable development, stakeholder involvement on environmental decisions, and their commitment to environmentally responsible behaviour, namely: exhibiting the sustainability principles of eco-villages and their role in environmental education processes and assessing the characteristics of existing EACs as innovative grounds for sustainability processes of effective environmental dissemination. An effort to estimate the value of eco-villages on further support of EACs' ultimate goals is also discussed, incorporating elements of innovative design and construction, environmentally friendly technologies and communication calibration in an attempt to operate as a means of sustainable development in a specific geographic area.
