RepowerGreece is an international public diplomacy campaign that seeks to empower a new way of thinking in facing emerging challenges and redefine Greece by confronting misconceptions that abound.
The initiative is built on clear messages and stories that demonstrate our commitment to unite our talents, correct our mistakes, and move forward with a renewed and result-oriented mindset, as they are reflected in stories from key sectors of our economy, education and civil society. Presented at a variety of discussion events and programs with academic institutions, community organizations and think tanks across the world, these stories offer clear evidence that Greece is not the failures or special interests of the few but rather the talents and achievements of the many.
In Greece we focus on the younger generation, aiming at safeguarding them from the prevailing negativity and disappointment by shedding light on the prospects and opportunities that exist in our country, while fostering a fresh and innovative way of thinking that champions collaboration, creativity and pursuit of excellence.
RepowerGreece is a volunteer grassroots initiative open to everyone, designed in such a way that any public or private organization, academic institution, company or media can join the campaign and spread the word to their own network.
With more than 50 events and initiatives organized in Greece and abroad, with the participation of more than 4.500 students from middle and higher education, business leaders, academics and media representatives, and with the support of esteemed national and international organizations, RepowerGreece is a dynamic initiative that reflects the commitment, credibility and creative mindsets that propel Greece forward.
RepowerGreece was originally conceived and developed more than 2 years ago by a small team who blended their ideas and expertise to serve a common purpose, and it is coordinated by the Institute for Regional Dialogue & Strategy and FORESIGHT Communications in Athens and RepowerGreece Inc. a not-for-profit organization in New York.
