Athens

Techfugees Athens representatives are part of the vibrant community of social entrepreneurs, innovators and enthusiasts that catalyse social change as part of Athen Impact Hub.

We work at applying design thinking methodologies or running hackathons to bring together people with different backgrounds and expertise. We believe a better world evolves through the combined accomplishments of creative, committed and compassionate individuals, migrants, refugees, asylum seekers or locals and all focused on a common purpose.

We believe our involvement with Techfugees is not only a starting point to produce innovative solutions for the refugees needs, but also the starting point for building more inclusive and collaborative communities.
