IHU EMBA graduates receive the Environmental Awareness Award OIKOPOLIS 2018, for their assignment 'Strategy for increasing awareness about the benefits of pedestrian mobility and accessibility to public spaces for the citizens of Thessaloniki'

Congratulations to our recent EMBA graduates, Margarita Angelidou, Ioanna Papachristou, Stavros Barmpas and Spyros Sofianos, for winning the Environmental Awareness Award OIKOPOLIS 2018, for their assignment 'Strategy for increasing awareness about the benefits of pedestrian mobility and accessibility to public spaces for the citizens of Thessaloniki'! The award ceremony was organized for the tenth consecutive year by the organization ECOCITY on 2 June 2018 on the island of Milos, Greece, under the auspices of the Municipality of Milos.

The assignment was carried out in the framework of the Field Trip of IHU’s EMBA programme, under the valuable guidance of Dr. Korina Katsaliaki and Dr. Stavroula Laspita. The purpose of the assignment was to develop an integrated strategy for increasing the awareness of citizens of Thessaloniki, as well as businesses and public organizations about the benefits of active, unobstructed and safe pedestrian mobility in the city. The strategy was based on an extensive investigation about the preferences of the city’s inhabitants (over 500 fully completed questionnaires). The consultation was given to the “Union for the Rights of Pedestrians” (www.enosipezon.gr), a well-known local NGO promoting pedestrian mobility and public space accessibility in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. In addition, the NGO received tailored advice towards effectively addressing their most pressing organisational and management challenges.

Through the developed strategy, the four EMBA graduate students intend to highlight the need to introduce strategic thinking and high quality organizational management in civil society.
