- April 2014, European Antifascist meeting at the Athens School of Fine Arts
Restistance against sexism, homophobia and transphobia
Participation at the workshop titled as "Restistance against sexism, homophobia and transphobia". Along with other five coordinators we raised awarness on the titled issues discussing personal experiences. There were two cases of teenagers asking help on how they can face such incidents in schools. This illustrates the need for critical pedagogy in schools. The workshop was supported by Queertrans and Loat
Personally, I would recommend the promotion of educational videos such as the following created by the Sweedish NGO RFSU which has been broadcasted at schools in Scandinavia.

- August 2013, World Congress of Philosophy.
4social stigma1 through 4elements18
The above question along with other 12 questions were addressed to 500 people who attended to the 23rd world congress of Philosophy in Athens.
It was an act that aimed to open a dialogue among the philosophers of 2013 and Athenians which gave birth to a social media project named 4elements18 (which later became 4elements1). The questions were gathered through social media. Attached file below (4social_stigma1)
Out of 500 questionnaires, I received none answer, even though it was an open call for people to answer on their own time and medium. One reason could be the fact that most questions were written in Greek. On the other hand, there were three questions in English. Adding to that, at least 1/5 of the people who received the questionnaires were Greek. One reason for addressing the questions exactly as I received them, was my effort to bring to the surface the various text speaks Athenians use when they type on social media. The way they communicate.
Another explanation could be that, the philosophers of 2013 were not interested or, did not have time to answer to any of the questions.
My personal belief is that solutions and new ideas could and should be the result of experimental open dialogues within the society.
The project has the potential to continue in the next congress which takes place in China in 2018 so if you are interested to participate please come in contact.
