04 - 05/10/2017

Our third annual conference in Athens, ‘Greece Forward III: Progressive Policies for the Cities of Today and Tomorrow’, co-organised with DIKTIO – Network for Reform in Greece and Europe, will focus on all key issues related to the future of cities and their citizens, at a political, social, cultural and economic level. Hosted in Athens, one of the world’s most important and creative cities since the ancient times, the intention is to ignite a meaningful debate on how we envision the present and future of large urban centres, taking into account the Greek and European experiences. To this aim, ‘Greece Forward III’ will aim at investigating the increasingly significant role that modern cities can play not only as epicentres and catalysts of growth, development, and democratic experimentation.

The conference will take place on Wednesday, October 4th, at the Acropolis Museum, in Athens. It will feature the participation of H.E. The President of the Hellenic Republic, Mr. Prokopios Pavlopoulos, the Mayors of Athens, Florence, Lemessos, Thessaloniki, and Pireaus, as well as a number of leading policy-makers, policy experts and academics from Greece and from Europe.
