Host | 2018 | 6 months
Partner: Impact Hub Athens (iha)
Impact Hubs make up a global network of people, places, and programs that inspire, connect and catalyze impact. Part innovation lab, part business incubator, and part community center, we offer our members a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities to grow impact.
We have started in 2013, locally rooted in Athens and globally connected with other 120 Impact Hubs worldwide. Today, we count with more than 120 members, numerous capacity building programs for social businesses, and great partnerships that capitalize the dynamic and expertise of each organization, with a purpose to strengthen the social economy field in Greece.
Hosting is an approach to leadership that scales up from the personal to the systemic using personal practice, dialogue, facilitation and the co-creation of innovation to address complex challenges.
Role & Tasks: For six months, I have pursued part time the host at iha. During this period apart from the hosting shifts, in collaboration with Ioanna Gkolemi, we developed a plan with solutions on waste management at iha i.e. how to reduce the potential waste and how to manage it (recycling, composting, reuse etc) being located in the center of Athens. Other than that, the host provides support for the community and ensures a positive member experience and it requires to connect qualitatively the community members by supporting their collaboration and interaction.
