 Capital Link continues to support the sustainable development in Greece by promoting and presenting both the initiatives from the business side, as well as the activities and needs of NGOs and organizes the 3rd Annual Corporate Social Responsibility Conference scheduled to be held in Athens at the Aegli Zappiou, on Thursday, June 27th, 2013 under the Auspices of the City of Athens and Athens Chamber of Commerce & Industry.

Keynote Speaker at this year’s conference is Global Greek Mr. George Logothetis, Chairman and CEO of the Libra Group. The Libra Global Internship Program is the only internship program of its kind in Greece. In collaboration with the Deree College and the Greek America Foundation, this program exemplifies the spirit of support that is so needed in Greece by helping 35 to 40 talented young people each year to see the world through the eyes of an international business group. Each intern receives a work placement of up to 6 months with the Libra Group or one of its global subsidiaries.

Under George Logothetis’s leadership, the Libra Group has also founded and is managing the Hellenic Entrepreneurship Award. With a commitment of €5 million Libra seeks to create opportunity for both experienced and budding entrepreneurs in Greece by providing winners with mentoring, funding and a full range of business support services. In April this year four businesses selected from 300 applicants were selected as the winners of this coveted award for 2013.

The Deputy Minister of Development, Competitiveness, Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Mr. Thanasis Skordas will participate at the forum and will address the audience. The Minister supports from the government side, every effort aiming to create new prospects for new investments and opportunities for everyone. Also the Mayor of Athens, Mr. George Kaminis as well as Mr. Constantine Michalos, President of the Union of Hellenic Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

PARTICIPATION AND PRESENTATION OF NGOs FROM ALL OVER GREECE

During the 3rd Annual CSR FORUM, there will also be a specially designed space where NGOs will be able, through their representatives, to communicate their programs, objectives and needs and achieve new collaborations and partnerships.

This is an initiative of Capital Link which can be realized thanks to the support of the companies participating at the Forum aiming to create live and direct interaction of all CSR stakeholders.

 FORUM TOPICS

Our theme for this year is «People for the People». We live in an era of global economic crisis with particularly negative consequences for our country and our society. Both personal and social lives of many of our fellow citizens have been badly affected. Greek businesses are struggling to face the serious consequences of the crisis. Furthermore, the deep crisis of institutions and values has caused a general feeling of unreliability and lack of confidence.

At the center of all this is the Greek citizen, the driving force of this country, although “wounded”- more than ever is deeply aware of the importance of volunteerism, the personal effort, the private initiative and above all the human solidarity towards a better and sustainable future.

The conference aims to highlight just that. In order to be effective and profitable in todays global and connected world, companies need a global vision of “who they are” and what they want to be with regard to globally responsible products/services, the right communications strategy, committed employees and customers who are engaged in and supportive of CSR programs. These can and do provide some of the glue to hold these various piece parts together.    The conference will discuss current pressing issues such as:

   •global water scarcity
   •renewable energy
   •solid waste management
   •supply chain management
   •volunteerism and commitment of employees
   •socially responsible investments, etc.

There will also be presentations about SMEs , the effective communication policy regarding CSR strategy and new trends on reporting practices etc.

Photo of the Day: At ERT's Solidarity Concert, The Human Face of the Greek Economic Crisis

One picture 1000 words: at ERT's amazing concert

A young woman in the choir is overcome by emotion as she sings the Greek national anthem at tonight's solidarity concert ...

Like many of her fellow musicians she cannot hold back the tears -
moving moments, the human face of the crisis

 Συγκινητικες, ανθρωπινες στιγμες στην συναυλια συμπαραστης της ΕΡΤ - 
 Δακρυσε ψελνοντας τον Εθνικο Υμνο και δακρυσαμε κι'εμεις μαζι της :( 

Σε γνωρίζω από την κόψη
του σπαθιού την τρομερή,
σε γνωρίζω από την όψη
που με βιά μετράει τη γη.

Απ' τα κόκαλα βγαλμένη
των Ελλήνων τα ιερά,
και σαν πρώτα ανδρειωμένη,
χαίρε, ω χαίρε, Ελευθεριά!

Watch the live streaming of ERT here 

Watch part of the concert below...




Economics vs Culture and Civilisation?

A very moving extract which beautifully depicts yesterday's emotion packed solidarity concert from the ERT studios in Agia Paraskevi and seen by millions via the streaming facilitated by the EBU and various TV/Radio and websites which have embedded the links.

We wouldn't have missed it for the world... the concert was superb... civilised resistance without violence but with culture and music, the real Greece. It is probably the best State TV - liberated from party lines and government constraints, free and open - that we will ever see.


The Journalist's comment at the end of the video says it all...

ΕΞΑΙΤΙΑΣ ΤΗΣ ΚΡΙΣΗΣ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΘΥΣΙΑΣΟΥΜΕ ΤΟΝ ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟ ΜΑΣ?

DOES THE CRISIS MEAN WE HAVE TO SACRIFICE OUR CULTURE AND CIVILISATION?

Definitely not!

Global Greek Humour: Greek Lovers and the Nymphomaniac Convention...

Apollo, the Greek God of Music
Statue at Athens Academy

A man boarded the aircraft at Athens' Eleftherios Venizelos Airport on a direct (thankfully) flight for New York.

As he settled into his seat, he noticed a beautiful young woman boarding the plane.

He realised she was heading straight toward him and - wait for it - she sat right next to him.
 

Hello, he blurted out, Business trip or vacation?

She turned, smiled enchantingly and said,  
Business. I'm going to the annual Nymphomaniac Convention in the United States.

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting for nymphomaniacs!

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked,  


What's your business role at this convention?
 

Lecturer, she responded, I use my experience to disprove some of the popular myths about sexuality.

Really, he smiled, what myths are those?
 

Well, she explained, one popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed when, in fact, it's the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait.

Another popular myth is that French men are the best lovers, when actually it is the men of Greek descent.

We have also found that the best potential lovers in all categories are the Irish.

Suddenly the woman became uncomfortable and blushed.  


I'm sorry, she said. I really shouldn't be discussing this with you, I don't even know your name!

Tonto, the man said.  
Tonto Papadopoulos, but my friends call me... 
Paddy!!!

Thanks Korina X, Athens

Photo of The Day: Anti-Fascism Message from Crete


 ΣΤΩΝ ΧΑΝΙΩΝ ΤΑ ΣΟΚΑΚΙΑ ΔΕΝ ΧΩΡΑΝΕ ΦΑΣΙΣΤΑΚΙΑ
No room for Little Fascists in Chania's alleyways

Message from Chania, Crete and the people who fought fascism at great personal cost as the island celebrates the 72nd anniversary of the Battle of Crete

Thank you to Global Greek Foot and Mouth artist Ilias Raftopoulos for this picture.

Ilias Raftopoulos - a self portrait

Born in Kalyves, Greece in 1958, Ilias attended primary and secondary school in Crete, and went on to attend Art School in Athens. In August 1981 he became tetraplegic after a tragic accident which left him with fractured fifth and sixth vertebrae. He started to paint with the mouth in 1986 and just one year later was able to participate in an exhibition in his hometown Chania. In 1988 he was granted a scholarship by the Association, and in 1994 he became associate member, achieving full membership  of the AMFPA in 1998.

In the last few years Ilias has been living in Sweden.


Among his favourite motifs are the landscapes of his homeland, Greece, which he paints in vivid Mediterranean colours. He is also fond of portraits. He uses both oils and water-colours. His works have frequently been shown at personal and group exhibitions at home and abroad. 

You can see some of Ilias' amazing art on the VDMK site
