The “Agora” of ancient Athens used to be the political, spiritual, philosophical, social and economic center of the city. Politics and Economy coexisted in the same place with full transparency, public checking and social accountability.
In this digital “Agora” we host articles, opinions, views and ideas but also dialogue among the citizens on specific issues. I am looking forward for your participation in a dialogue for local and global matters of common concern.
Labor • Youth
Creating jobs for Europe’s youth is a critical matter with profound implications for social and intergenerational justice. We ask for your constructive contribution to this Erasmus for Jobs proposal – your ideas, suggestions, modifications, and, of course, disagreements – to help advance this important debate.
Economy & Development
The measures taken to overcome the crisis seem not to work in favor of European integration. On the contrary, the crisis has given rise to extremist voices and dangerous stereotypes which, in turn, have created rifts between the peoples of Europe.
Nowadays, the powerful influence of markets and financial centers poses the same threat to our collective social progress.
