About this event

This Year we invite thinkers, dreamers and doers to join us in the conversation about:
How the ways of the past have led to the colossal challenges of today.
Greece is ensnared in a deep crisis of many levels; political, financial, cultural and ethical.
This is a time of rapid change that offers great risk but also the incredible opportunity to transform.
Everyone who must lead change faces the challenges of changing minds starting with his own.
So unbuckle your imagination to enter the era of possibility, the zone of “what can possibly happen” when we all make a “step forward” .
When we dare to step into the unknown, to risk, to change, to actively participate and create a new trajectory of prosperity and growth on a personal and societal level.
Its about time for Change in the way we work, we learn & create, and the way we live!
“STEP Forward”? The time is Now!...
