Time to ACT for and inside Greece!

Inspire

For almost a year back, exactly in April 2011, we had our first blog text about “made in Greece” products sold and promoted by Trikiklo.

Probably the most successful blog text ever written on the Trikiklo Blog, if to judge from the amount of “like” clicks.

At that moment we still had no idea of in what direction this newly opened door would lead.

We as most of the country were still sailing on “a fairly controllable” ocean, rocking yes, but yet not shaking from the devastating waves of the so called financially crisis.

The paradox

Time to say goodbye…

to Year 2011… in the name of challenge


Most of us, so at least here in Greece, are in one or another way catch up and catch in the “crisis”. Most of us have seen and experienced how our lives and other people lives have been thrown into a turbulent virulence, where what was counting and what was reliable and what was “real” to us yesterday, today is no longer countable, and where the tomorrow only holds us up/back on uncertainty, insecurity, doubtfulness, self-reproach, anger, despair…and fear.

Many have already given up, many more might be close to follow, and the ones who still holds on to what “exists” are mostly overwhelmed and paralyzed from fear for taking the next step. For me the message is clear as a crystal: change change change change change … and more change.

So was the headline for a seminar on Voluntarism held in Greece begin this year, arranged from two Greek Aid organisations; The Volunteers’ Association and The SOS ELIZA Home, in honour for year 2011, which is announced as European Year of Volunteering.

The clear message was: As almost the whole structure of Social Welfare in Greece is depended on private initiative and voluntary action, the need for volunteers, sponsors, supporters of almost all kind is bigger than ever!

We feel responsible to contribute.

Social responsibility is a natural part of the way we

My name is STOKKE®, Rune Stokke!

Inform, Inspire

Early October this year, we had the great honor of welcoming Mr. STOKKE®, Mr. Rune Stokke himself and his Norwegian board of direction including all the highly ranged executives from the Norwegian & International business scene, to Trikiklo.

That day will remain in my memory for a long time, as the moment where a crucial cycle for Trikiklo took its fulfillment.

I did not understand the full impact of this extraordinary visit to Trikiklo at the very moment it took place. Also I had no idea what a single moment 12 years earlier could lead to.

A case study

It all took its beginning in one of these typical, multinational mainstream department stores proving baby equipment, could have been anywhere on this planet, but it was in Denmark. The year was 1999 and Vagelis and I simultaneously fall in love… with the
