The name Draxos derives from the Greek word drasi, which means action. We sought inspiration in the language spoken by the great educators Plato and Aristotle, scholars of phenomena of nature and human science, and founders of the Akademia and the Lyceum institutions where the main goal was knowledge exchange It is in this sense that Draxos guides its action, believing that the exchange of knowledge that leads to reflection, is the main propellant towards changing man´s behavior in relation to the environment they live in.
