What is Mecone?

Mecone is a mythical Greek City. Known as the city where humans came into conflict with the gods resulting in the gods taking fire away from humans – humankind’s most precious natural resource.

To us, Mecone represents the need to find balance between human needs and the natural environment. It also represents how humanity benefits from the natural world and how conflicts with the environment can have major impacts.
