we believe! we can!
The recently-launched live.lovegreece.gr is an alternative, non-profit venture that involves the creation of a database to showcase the best of modern Greece, accompanied by a media campaign in Greece and abroad. Its constantly updated content will be youthful, fresh and modern, with a streamlined, contemporary style reflecting the values of the people it hosts. live.lovegreece.gr, which is an initiative of the G & A Mamidakis Foundation, was unveiled on Thursday 10 April 2014 at the Electra Palace hotel, along with a sample of how information will be gathered, presented and disseminated in and outside Greece.
According to Gina Mamidaki, President of the G & A Mamidakis Foundation, the aim of lovegreece.com is “to bring together and display in the most modern and interactive way, everything that is most important and exportable about today’s Greece, in all walks of life, including economics, art, literature, science, the voluntary sector, etc., showing how dynamic the country and its people are. To maximise our effectiveness, we will be joining forces with other successful ventures that promote the discovery new talents, volunteerism, mentoring and the funding of start-up businesses.”
Scientists, entrepreneurs, professionals, artists, creative groups and citizens who stand out for their original ideas, services, knowledge, products and contribution to society, etc. can be nominated, selected and showcased through the lovegreece.com website, becoming part of an international information campaign that utilises every kind of social media. At the same time, there will be videos, short films and documentaries, press interviews, special events, stories and features in the international press, TV presentations in Greece and abroad, etc.
The enterprise will be particularly important for talented young people with high-quality, original ideas, who cannot easily tap into Greek and international sources of support. There will also be promotion of companies and products in all areas, as well as major initiatives that are already known in Greece and abroad and are ‘flagships’ showing what Greece is capable of on the international stage. At the same time, ‘leaders’ will be invited to act as ‘mentors’ to the new creative generation.
What is most interesting is that the action aims to reach out to all Greeks, inspiring them and motivating them to play an active role in gathering and disseminating information.
The G & A Mamidakis Foundation has created the structures (a website, a database, a mechanism for presenting participants, a mechanism for making connections and communicating) and will support the linking of the effort with international markets through strategic partnerships in Greece and abroad.
The idea was born out of the crisis – and faith in the potential and capabilities of Greece and its people.
