During the forums which took place on Tuesday, April 2, at the "The Hub Events" organizations, companies, private and public bodies, representatives of SMEs, academics, students and citizens will meet not to recycle problems but to jointly seek sustainable solutions to the most important issues they face our country. Among these forums, Prof. Phoebe Koundouri, Prof. Lenio Myrivili, Marianthi Liapi, Eric Scotto, Dr. Andriasopoulos and other speakers discussed potential solutions aiming to make cities Green! At the event held at Impact Hub Athens there were many tangible examples of the convergences that can be achieved both in the field of innovation, with Startups linking with merchant shipping, for example, the environmental impact of the Greek fleet, with solutions to urgent issues, such as to a disease that destroys plane trees in Europe and Greece.
