Reshaping a traditional Athenian Neighborhood for citizens and visitors: boosting Social Entrepreneurs and Circular Values at the Kypseli Agora

A historic neighbourhood in Athens was at risk of falling apart due to the youth leaving the region. To revive this culturaly important area, a project was implemented with the aim of bringing the neighbourhood back to life. The project proved to have a lot of success. Kypseli Agora was reborn and now offers a public space for the whole community raising the life of quality again and furthermore leading to the City of Athens becoming the European Capital of Innovation in 2018.
