  • You Rule and Dimokratia Ideon on the streets of a different Athens. 

You RuleEmfasis in cooperation with YouRule and Dimokratia Ideon offered during a night shift on 26th March, hot tea, croissant, snacks, sleeping bags offered by the Greek Community of Amsterdam, clothing and smiles to all those who were in a “street situation”.

Aimilia Kalantzi, Emfasis Social Street Worker, talked about her experience: “Every person we approach, teaches us to listen to the need and will of people who live on the streets. The shift we conducted hand in hand with YouRule and Dimokratia Ideon  is the hard evidence that together we can do more. It would be better to spend less time looking at the shop windows and observe more the people around us.”
