Five Greek finalists in the 2023 Innovation in Politics Awards


Five Greek projects have been short-listed for the 2023 Innovation in Politics Awards, according to Ekathimerini.

The awards recognise innovative projects based on values of social balance, democracy and human rights.

There are two Greek finalists in the Climate Protection category:

  • Amorgorama: A project by the Professional Fishing Association of Amorgos, which aims to find a sustainable approach to tackle increasing plastic pollution and overfishing in the Aegean Sea, and
  • Just Go Zero Tilos: a waste free initiative from the island of Tilos.

The Greek government’s ‘Housing and Work for the Homeless’ program, launched in 2017, is a finalist in the Social Cohesion category. The program aims at strengthening the possibility of social reintegration of individuals and families living in homeless conditions.

A finalist in the Local Development category is the municipality of Halandri’s project ‘Cultural H.ID.RA.N.T’ (Cultural Hidden IDentities ReAppear through Networks of WaTer), which aims to re-introduce Hadrian’s Aqueduct from the Roman period to the contemporary urban life of Halandri.

The Municipal University of Ilion’s ‘Paving the way towards a sustainable learning city,’ has been nominated as a finalist in the Education category.

The winners will be announced in Warsaw, Poland on May 11.
