Introducing the Athens Street Team
This past week, Interboro launched the Lycabettus Hill Mobile Engagement Station in Athens, Greece! In collaboration with the Municipality of Athens, Rebuild by Design, and 100 Resilient Cities, we designed three engagement tools to solicit input about Athens' highest hill. The team will be out in the streets and pubic spaces in Athens throughout the summer asking people for their thoughts and ideas about Lycabettus Hill. The Athens Street Team includes students from the Agricultural University, Harokopio University, and the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The street team is managed by Anthi Christou, Stakeholder Engagement Manager at Resilient Athens. Keep an eye out for this amazing group! You can also find the locations of the mobile engagement station here:

It is her pleasure to contribute with the design, construction and management of these spaces that can upgrade everyday life and fill it with creativity and innovation.
