  5. "Cruising on the surface of the sprawling cement crust that covers the Athenian basin, a bunch of lunatic bicycle riders, reclaim public space, with their environmentalist DIY style. Their guerrilla films, caustic performances and adrenaline pumping rides through the city ‘local/athens’ seed their Athens with the hopes and aspirations of a more involved youth.

    The crumbling city is at the mercy of those who are willing to piece together or tear down the relic of a time that has passed. This group of people of all ages and nationalities seize the fertile moment to share a common vision of their future. Self organizing and initiating new ways to explore public space local/athens is one of many new young communities which have given up on elected officials to look out for their interests and are no longer going to sit on the side line.

    Hopefully this is the dawn of a new era where Greece’s youth is more intimately involved with their environment and their community, equipping them with the weapons to survive in the difficult times to come."
