Outcomes of the activity

During this Forum, the participants created and produced short videos with concepts that represent the cornerstones of our experience as information operators in the social sphere.
Moreover, on the last day of the Social Communication Forum 2.0 that took place in Athens, we organised a public event. We presented the different outputs produced after many hours shared among organizations that are active in the social field, coming from different parts of Europe.Everyone put forward proposals, suggested good practices and highlighted effective methods of communication. All this has led us to focus on methods that allow a message to reach a wide audience, so as to enhance the impact of social actions. At Impact Hub Athens, we presented the short videos generated by intense debates on the different perceptions of the same social phenomenon between countries. Our goal was to ease the work of the communicators, who are grappling with the challenge of distributing more and more attractive contents.

Testimonial of the reference person

Alexia managed to keep the participants complete attention on a number of difficult sessions in terms of the flow of the Seminar, due to her abilities as well as the preparation done in the previous days.

She has presented captivating content that sparked discussions and facilitated them in order to transmit the best practices about disseminating information.

My only regret was that we should have put her sessions in the beginning of the program, as she was able to set up both the foundations for storytelling as well as the dissemination part.
