We bring experience from having researched, tested and implemented transformative models of governance during the years of the Greek financial crisis in the context of the Athens Municipality, Athens’ Development Agency and the cultural sector. We identified similar gaps in our fields of interest and joined forces to become catalysts of positive social change.
