10th Global Table Event by the BMW Foundation in Athens

The 10th Global Table in Athens was really fascinating for me. A part from the event I was also commissioned to shoot short reportages on a few of the grass room solidarity movements that have formed in Greece as a response to the lack of social institutions provided by the government in the wake of the economical. I met some very amazing people.

Some of the organizations I met are:
