2nd Leadership Local Activity in Siatista, Greece
On Saturday 25th of May 2019, the day before the European elections, young people from Siatista met at the Local Library (Spiritual Center) to analyze the existing situations in 4 areas of daily life in the city and to work n 4 committees to propose solutions and ideas for their improvement!
Committee: Youth Entrepreneurship
As part of the European event "Democracy and I", the committee of "Youth Entrepreneurship” was defined the previous days and its members were selected based on their own preferences and interests, composed by Tasos Gravas, George Gravas, George Kotenidis, George Deligiannis, Anna Maniou and the team coordinator was Markos Chionos.
Through introductory games and team development, the committee focused on Extroversion as the characteristic that must be developed in order to improve the entrepreneurship of young people in Siatista.
Our ultimate goal is to design and present a project that will focus on and will succeed
promotes the extroversion of young people, who want to get involved in entrepreneurship, aged
between 22 and 35 years old, we used the technique of "tree" where the trunk
is the goal to be achieved, the roots represent the difficulties that must
transcend and reverse to reach the leaves of the tree that represent
the beneficial results of achieving our goal.
Through discussion, exchange
ideas and brainstorming we chose as the need for: experiential
youth education, activism, initiative support, family support
personal business choices, interpersonal relationships, progressiveness and innovation
thinking. As a result of the development of extroversion among young people we agreed, among others
others, in: strengthening critical capacity, collegiality and cooperation, creating new jobs
of work, attraction of funds, business adaptation of tradition to the modern
needs, raising living standards, respecting and upgrading the local natural environment.
Thus, the project proposed is about the implementation of an international training course involving 30 young people from Siatista and
2 other towns abroad which have similar business and
professional features with ours, specializing in a particular finance
industry (such as Siatista has fur and wine production).
3 trainings will be held in equal number of local educational trips where
trainers will be specialists and experts in the field.
The aim of the project will be to exchange good practices from development, development and
adapting to the contemporary environment of the local professions so that we can choose
new ideas and techniques to upgrade the production and promotion of our local products.
Also, the result of the project will be to produce a manual containing them
best practices and techniques, which will be distributed to local entrepreneurs,
professionals and schools in our area.
Finally, our additional goal is to develop
professional network with the other 2 cities for further cooperation.
Our committee has suggested seeking funding for the project from related programs
of the European Union, as well as from charitable institutions of Siatista. Finally, after all
we set up the project team and set the roles for each of us to propose as
indicative start date of the program in March 2020 and its duration, 1
The members of the committee were Agni, Anastasia, Christina and Giannis and the Team Leader was Dimitris Batsis.
The first stage aimed at getting to know the members better was to
say our names and say something we like from the original letter
of our name.
In the second stage we played a team game to get to know each other better
bulding (killers and police officers) which aimed at better cooperation
of group in later exercise.
Using the Problem Tree method we recorded 6 basic problems that
tourism in Siatista nowadays.
These problems are
1) Poorly maintained mansions,
2) Provided fur sale,
3) Lack of retail local products
4) Accommodation / Hosting
6) A tour / information
and also 6 consequences of these which
1) False impression / image,
2) Reduced sales,
4) Tourist attraction,
5) Common tastes,
Then we came up with solutions to the above problems which are
1) Maintenance of mansions by a volunteer youth group and promoted
through social media to attract more tourists,
Modernize the promotion and sale of fur which will be achieved
through marketing seminars on fur and how to use it
BIO.PA as a sales / exhibition space;
3) Supporting the authorities to
companies with specific financial support programs and
also by promoting / selling our local products to other countries /
4) Exploit the hotels with qualified staff and
5) View local cuisine
by adding local dishes to each dining area, adding
of Siatista cooks and with the organization of food festivals,
Volunteer Guides who can work with tourists
agencies and can also help put signs on
various points to better orient the tourist.
Its members have generally worked together to achieve this
of the above solutions and troubleshooting.
In the end we decided on the idea of Agni to present our ideas by
role playing method.
Committee: Environment and recycling
Our team chose to deal with Siatista's pollution and the disaster to the
natural environment. The participants win this committee were: Alexandra Tsioukra, Tasos
Goudras Katsiris, Aneta Dokou and Chrysoula Klisiari and the coordinator was Maria Stefanidou. The name of the
group is "Green Siatista".
We started dating by saying our names and playing the game "2 Truths and 1
lie "to get to know each other and" pass the orange the bottle "to break
We then brainstormed on the subject of the environment and analyzed
the pollution and destruction of the environment by the Problem Tree method.
The root of the problem lies in the wrong mentality and lack of ecology
and so the solution suggested is to organize one
in Siatista, entitled "Green Sunday", which will be attended by 30
volunteers, who will work in 3 groups throughout the morning, throughout
1 /. Tree planting team
2 /. Rubbish collection team
3 /. Passers-by group on recycling, environmental pollution, reduction
use of vehicles
Then at noon all volunteers will gather for
report and lunch, and the evening will be an open event at the General High School
Dancing with music, food and various interactive games for all ages
concern the protection of the environment, e.g. blind where your audience tells you who
recycling bin to close eyes with different parts of a package.
When we came up with the idea, the team worked on the part of its presentation,
preparing a role playing role playing in a radio station where
were informed about the "Green Sunday" event.
Our team has chosen to deal with the subject of Sport in Siatista.
The people who make up this committee were: Ioanna Tsioukra, Thanasis
Katsiris, Panos Kakoulis and Fotis Itas and the coordinator was Vivian Lada.
At first we went through the stage of identifying the people in the group
(names and a little discussion on what each of us is doing). Then, we played two team building games so that the team could bond and be able to
perform in the best possible way (pass the ball, thieves and police officers). Afterwards
we worked on the Problem Tree method and the problem we analysed was the inadequate support in the field of Sport.We reached for the reasons
that create it, such as lack of funding, incentives and expertise
staff and finally we talked about the consequences of the problem (no
sports facilities are used to the full, they do not take place in sports
At a later stage, we went on to find a solution to address
all these consequences.
Our suggestion is to organize a three-day sporting event. Initially, the
day 1 will include introductory activities and team building games
as well as neighborhood games so that participants get to know each other and
to divide into groups. In the end there will be an interactive dinner in which a healthy diet expert will organise a workshop for the participants.
On the second day
teams will be invited to play a dozen, combined sports activities
with the game, and in the end the winning team will win a prize.
The final day will include hiking and climbing on Bourinos Mountain, with
training and guidance of the Siatista Mountaineering Club and Runners.
At the top of the shelter there will be a party with food, barbeque, fruit and
vegetables and of course dj and lots of music. All of them will be commemorated
participants during the celebration.
Our idea was called Siatista Goes Active.
When we came up with the idea, the team worked on the part of its presentation,
by choosing the role playing method.
In the end our team was selected as the best presentation-
