The aim of the exhibition was the sensitization of the public with respect to the role played by Hellenic NGOs in Civil Society. It was the first time that a large number of NGOs, activated both in Hellas and abroad in the field of humanitarian and development interventions, participated jointly in an initiative, which portrayed in a unique way the work they undertake all over the world. The exhibition itself focused on the presentation of snapshots from the humanitarian and development oriented initiatives implemented dynamically by the Hellenic NGOs, in an effort to promote their work but also activate the participation of the citizens, the business world, Local Self-Government and the world of politics.
The exhibition was organized by the Hellenic Centre for the Promotion of Volunteerism "anthropos.gr" and the Municipality of Amarousio Cultural Centre.
The Global Call for Action Against Poverty (GCAP)is the biggest ever campaign implemented in order to combat poverty and so far, using the characteristic white band, it has managed to activate and motivate thousands of organisations and millions of people all over the world, who all demand radical changes in international relations, but also immediate and effective measures to end poverty and create a world that is more just and humane.
In order to achive this ambitious goal, GCAP focuses its attention on three focal points related to the sustainable development of developing countries:
Adopting of just international transactions
Increasing of the quantity and quality of developmental assistance
Immediate debt relief for the developing countries, without any other economic or political exchanges
The Hellenic Forum aims at contributing jointly with the other national networks to the efforts for the creation of a more just and humane world, which is free of poverty and dependence.
