The This-Athens-Polis programme extends a call to active citizens, residents and professionals in Athens inviting them to co-design the identity of the city.

It is an urban revitalization programme that includes projects like:

  • Re- opening closed shops and abandoned spaces in the centre of Athens
  • Providing incentives to residents and professionals for small scale urban interventions in their building or common areas. 
  • Removing graffiti tags and illegal posters in targeted locations in downtown Athens
  • Launching projects that enrich the city's agenda throughout the year

This is Athens -Polis is implemented under This is Athens & Partners, a public-private partnership between the City of Athens and private stakeholders aimed at developing and promoting Athens as a destination.
