EuroMED9 Summit at the SNFCC

September 20, 2021

ATHENS — Earlier today, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) welcomed the Heads of State and Government of the EuroMED9 Group, a collection of European countries on the Mediterranean, including Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, French President Emmanuel Macron, and President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, and Prime Ministers Mario Draghi of Italy, Pedro Sanchez of Spain, Robert Abela of Malta. Also participating in the summit were Prime Ministers Andrej Plenkovic of Croatia and Janez Jansa of Slovenia, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal Augusto Santos Silva, and President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen.

The Greek Prime Minister and the European leaders were welcomed by Ambassador Vassilis Kaskarelis on behalf of the Board of Directors of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), and by SNFCC Managing Director Elly Andriopoulou.

From its first day, the SNFCC has been a cultural touchstone in Greece, welcoming important figures from around the world. The SNFCC is hosting this year’s Summit, which focuses on pressing issues including climate change, not only as an Athenian landmark, but also as an international example of environmental sustainability. Sustainability has been an integral component of the SNFCC since the idea for the center was first conceived by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and architect Renzo Piano. The project has offered a new paradigm for the sustainable construction, operation, and maintenance of public infrastructure and has sought to raise public consciousness of environmental issues.

The Greek tourism market is seeing a remarkable recovery and while it is most obvious in Athens – that’s where the media is – the powerful signs include the packed ferries and planes that connect with the islands of the South Aegean, with their iconic whitewashed houses that are what most people outside Greece think about when they contemplate visiting.
