“We live in an era of intense conflict and massive institutional failures, a time of painful endings and of hopeful beginnings. It is a time that feels as if something is shifting and dying while something else wants to be born.” -Czech President Vaclav Havel
Ancient Greece, together with its philosophers, created ideas from which we have build our western society upon the last 2500 years.
But somewhere along the way we have side-tracked.
Right now our westen society is struggeling and the faith for
political forces to solve the current challenges are limited.
There is a need for new models of how to empower citizens to support decisions-makers and replace “quick-fixes” with
sustainable change that can bring Europe into the future.
In 2012, the epic ruins of Acropolis will become the
epicenterfor a action-oriented innovation event
addressing the most pressing challenges in Greece that inspire global change.
In the very cradle of the old ideas, new will be borne!
