Contrary to what Antonio Samaras keeps assuring, not everything is going well in Greece. As a matter of fact, a lot of things are going quite wrong. In a country where the youth unemployment rate has reached a dismaying 66%, it is only with sarcasm that one can refer to the overall situation as a “success story”.
Giving a voice to those young Greeks who normally remain unheard was the motivation for the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF) to organize a dialogue programme for Greek youth activists in the cities of Nuremberg, Cologne and Düsseldorf. Six young people from Athens, Thessaloniki and Samos took part in it, each of them with a stirring life story and the drive to change their country as well as their personal lives for the better.
