U.S. Election Event, Oct. 14, 2016

The Consular Section - U.S. Embassy Athens hosted a festive voting event at the American Community Schools for American citizens living in Greece.  Hundreds of registered voters attended to cast their ballots in patriotic style with members of the Consular Section on hand to provide voter assistance.

Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt made remarks on the importance of democracy and individual citizens' participation in the democratic process:

"I have the extraordinary honor of being American Ambassador in Greece, in the country that gave birth to the idea of representative democracy.  So that's kind of neat and a really unique honor.  This idea of representation, “rule by the people”, is so, so important to what makes our country great, but it’s also something that we hold deeply in common with the people of Greece...

...those of us who believe in democracy need to speak out forcefully, because both the facts and history are on our side.  That doesn’t mean democracies are without flaws.  We all know that from our own country’s experience.  But it does mean that the cure for what ails our democracies is greater engagement by our citizens – not less.  And all of you are part of that process."

ECIS, RSA & ACS Athens Refugee Education Summit, November 10-11, 2016

ACS Athens in collaboration with ECIS (Educational Collaborative for International Schools), the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce), plus support from WISE (World Innovation Summit for Education), has begun a project on refugee education and the role that international schools play — in this case, in Athens.

This project aims to demonstrate how Greece and other European countries can develop an educational ‘ecosystem’ that supports positive outcomes for refugees, whether they are temporary, transitional, or long-term.   Our goal is to nurture a new, sustainable, partnership-based approach across the city that could be replicated in other areas.

This partnership is a prime example of how organizations can influence educational issues as researchers and advocates for the values of international education.

ACS Athens will host a two-day Summit on November 10 and 11, 2016.  Further details will be shared with our community, as we approach that date.
