Diese „Best-of-Show“ zivilgesellschaftlicher Initiativen der euro-mediterranen Region zeigt, wie neue kreative Formen des interkulturellen Dialogs, der aktiven Bürgerschaft und der gesellschaftlichen Partizipation an der Basis und lokal initiiert und gestaltet werden – trotz teilweise geschlossener physischer Grenzen und eingeschränkter Bewegungs- und Begegnungsmöglichkeiten vor Ort.
Die „Citizen Reporters“ aus Libyen, Ägypten, Italien, Griechenland und dem Libanon kommen selbst zu Wort und präsentieren lokale Aktivitäten und Initiativen, die Hoffnung, Solidarität und Visionen von einer aktiven, vielfältigen und agilen internationalen Zivilgesellschaft vermitteln.
Das Format setzt das Projekt „We are still here! EuroMed Citizen Reporters“ fort und findet in Kooperation mit der Anna Lindh Foundation statt.
Die 20-minütige Show wird am 7. Juni um 21:00 Uhr live gestreamt.
Die Premiere während der „Langen Nacht der Ideen 2021“ ist zugleich der Startschuss für die Publikation einer Vielzahl von zivilgesellschaftlichen Initiativen auf der Website

Until the 1st of June our Welcommon Hostel, a seven-floor facility building with rooms and dorms in the center of Athens with a social and green impact, remained closed #COVID19. We were forced to make the heartbreaking decision of closing our doors until the 31st of May. The safety of our clients is a priority. But our WELCOMMON HOSTEL is open again. As it is a hostel for sustainable tourism and a centre for social, cultural, climate and environmental activities, and if you are planning to travel to Athens in the next years, visit our site www.welcommonhostel.gr, book from now your private room with balcony and support us.

You can save our hostel from the devastating financial effects of the COVID-19 crisis and support our social, cultural and environmental activities.

We hope we will be able to welcome you soon in safe mode. Until then we are hosting 70 homeless vulnerable refugees living in the streets during COVID-19!
