THE FIX TANK OF CIVIC EDUCATION

The aim of Fix Tank is to form a small collection of ideas on civic education and social innovation, that will be able to function as a stepping stone to small but also big changes in the city. In an attempt to search and collect ideas for the improvement of life in the urban web of Athens as well as any other problematic city, the Fix Tank turns to its citizens, giving them a voice and defending their right to their city. Together they create a reservoir of creative thinking, giving us food for thought and a push to act.
