Christmas drinks, Athens Partnership Presentation

The F.P.A. invited members, colleagues and guests for Christmas drinks on December 20. In a relaxed and collegial atmosphere, it also hosted a presentation by the Athens Partnership, a non-profit carrying out high-impact public-private initiatives in partnership with the Municipality of Athens.

The Athens Partnership’s Executive Director Alexandros Kambouroglou gave a rundown of its 14 major projects and achievements since its 2015 launch with the backing of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. “We come up with real, scalable solutions,” Kambouroglou said.

Other key Athens Partnership officials were also present: Athens Vice Mayor for Migrants, Refugees and Municipal Decentralization Lefteris Papagiannakis; the city’s first Digital Officer Kostas Champidis; as well as Kostis Alketas Oungrinis, Vice Dean of the School of Architectural Engineering at the Technical University of Crete.

The F.P.A. founded in 1916, brings together the foreign press corps operating in Greece and hosts events and press briefings throughout the year.
