Short thesis: 

Europe and Greece as part of it, is in a unique moment. Facing severe crises, the country and its people are now more than ever asked to take responsibility – and drive the needed changes in society out of necessity or desire, in models yet unexplored, and most importantly inspired by intent, responsibility, zeal and innovation. How those tensions and struggles can be channeled into ideas and aspiration for impact? The Impact Hub Athens seeks to host this movement by creating a hub for impact in the heart of the city, empowering young people as active citizens, creating & supporting sustainable organisations as an organic laboratory for entrepreneurship.
