Going Against the Crisis

BY DESPOINA POLYZOIDOU
@ MSM GOES PECHAKUCHA ON MAR 17, 2017

Despoina Polyzoidou shows how the economic crisis in Greece has triggered a new era for the primary sector of the country. In order to find ways to cope with economic challenges, her fellow countrymen are not staying idle but rather focus more and more on agriculture, forestry, fishing and mining to create special, top quality, branded products as a way to fight the crisis.

Despoina is concerned about her country and wants to share "views from inside" because she feels that the media sometimes distorts information and only emphasises the negative sides of a situation.

Despite the crisis, she believes, there is always hope and room for positive actions.
