Start-up Hypothesis [November 2019] 🇬🇧

~ A hypothetical startup that became real 🎯 🧩

🧶 Working once more on the hypothesis of a residential startup retreat with 37 young people from 7 countries.
🧶 Travelling endless hours to reach the magical Isle of Wight🚌🛳️🚄🚄🚃🚃🚄✈️🚗
🧶 Finding inspiration to write down my own method in the form of an Erasmus+ project after being years inactive as a direct project writer.
🧶 Using #MediaLiteracy means and tools is always inspiring but this time we scale up by making a #BigBrother booth for self-reflection and self-expression and it was a great attempt and I will definitely use it further and experiment with.
🧶 Working on a real-life startup while getting inspired by the learning process of others.
🧶 Testing out the new #Chanemaking tool by Ashoka was a pleasure to work it and see the results and the effect on people.
🧶 Having the pleasure to work once more with Cathy brought once again a truly inspiring synergy.
🧶 Taking up some random hikes is always refreshing and revitalising while makes this 1-second-shots video endless.

🍒What was my main learning?🍒
No matter what kind of experiential activity I conduct, by keeping my working principals and preassumptions same, I reach very similar results.
#Conclusion: Time to widespread a method that is working well.

🌳 This was 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐮𝐩 𝐇𝐲𝐩𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐬 youth exchange programme aiming to bring together young startupers or interested youngsters on becoming startupers in order to explore Social Impact, Entrepreneurship and Social Changemaking through experiential learning processes in 1-second-shots 🤳

Video Impact [September 2019] 🇨🇾

~ Media trainings are fun 🦸🤳

🎞️ Media trainings are fun because there is a lot of practice and minimal theory.
🎞️ Learning there is the absolute responsibility of the participants.
🎞️ During 7 days of training, we created 52 videos.
🎞️ 5 of them they Social Promotional videos for non-profit organizations in Limassol, Cyprus
🎞️ All these we did with frugal production tricks (smartphones, gorillapods, lots of papertape, and any equipment and prop available)
🎞️ The pool was not destruction to the learning process but a “cool” factor to chill when the video is rendering or when your plan is not going as planned.
🎞️ Beyond everything, I truly believe that this was also a very hard test for people to challenge their way working in teams and the ways to learn how to stop themselves
🎞️ This is definitely a training concept that I want to keep developing further.

🎥 This was Video Impact training course aiming to create social impact through videomaking through 1-second-shots 🤳

Inclusive Outdoors n2 [August 2019] 🇬🇧


~ Have a look at my latest training adventure 🤠💂‍♀️🇬🇧

🎯 Getting upgraded to business class due to the overbooked flight ✔
🎯 Outdoor Education dissemination seminar at the in the magical park of Crystal Palace in London;
🎯 Main method: Learning out of challenges;
🎯 Creating a learning assignment around London for our participants brought a new crazy project idea, for a new training concept: How to do run trainings outside of a training room;
🎯 We had the honour and privilege to be literally the last customers of the Crystal Palace. After us, it is now closed forever or a generous investor has to save it from the demolition.
🎯 I feel grateful working one more time in this concept with Ilze and this time with the one-of-a-kind kind team Petra, Elisavet, Andres & Katie.
🎯 This was the best way to start my trainings season.

🏞 This was my “Inclusive Outdoors” phase2 experience in a 1-second shots video compilation. 🏕

🏃🏻‍♂️ The trainings marathon is only starting now! 🏃🏻‍♂️

Start-up Hypothesis [May 2019] 🇬🇧


What happens when you bring people from different sides of Europe in a youth hostel at the Isle of Wight 🇬🇧 and you work on the hypothesis that they run a Startup?

Well, this was “Startup Hypothesis”, the latest learning program that I developed together with Cathy on behalf of Abroadship.org.

After getting on a hype using the 1-second shot video during #mySWY experience, I decided, not only to make an 1-second shots recap of this experience but also to use the 1 Second Everyday app for learning reasons.

This time I challenged groups of participants to vlog specific outdoor assignments in 1-second shots videos and the results. (find their video results on the page Abroadship.org)

If this video makes you want to get a similar experience and you are from 🇬🇷🇷🇴🇪🇸🇱🇹🇮🇹🇧🇬🇬🇧 write to me cause we are re-launching this experiment the coming November at the same place.

Ship for World Youth [January – March 2019] 🇯🇵🇵🇼🇦🇺🇸🇧


This is #mySWY31 experience with 1-second ⏰ shots every day filmed 🎥 just by my phone.

These are the most significant seconds of mine between the 10th of January till the 2nd of March while I was participating on the 31st Ship for World Youth program 🚢 as the leader of the Greek delegation, experiencing the momentum of the biggest youth program on the planet. 🌏
Of course, it was very difficult to choose only one second for several days, therefore this led me on making 9 extra videos.

If you want to look back on the previous videos of #mySWY experience follow the links below:

New Website

It has been many years I was looking for a digital shelter that can host the spectrum of my activities while working as a promotional tool for me.

The day had come and now ladies and gentlemen I proudly welcome you in my latest achievement; the creation of my own website totally designed by me, google searches, online forums and questioning my geek friends.

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 14.27.29

for my geek readers that they want more information: I used the wordpress.org, the brooklyn theme of United Themes, google search and my geek friends Vasilis Dovantzis and Panos Vakalopoulos.

Last but not least a big thanks for the people who went first through this website before I publish it and proofreaded me and thoughts.
