The Athens Municipality invites all to its #switch_on event on March 3, at the Technopolis in Gazi, to set off a series of activities and initiatives across town celebrating life, hope and cooperation.
The former gasworks company-turned-multi-purpose cultural/educational center will be hosting the #switch_on event which marks the official launch of the Athens Watchtower and the first Athens Bikes sharing station and celebrates two years of Innovathens, housed in an 1887 building on the Technopolis grounds with parties and plenty of music.
#switch_on organizers selected the Technopolis site due to its significant role in Athens’ history. This was once the city’s main gasworks source supplying the Greek capital with energy and lighting for 130 years.
The #switch_on event is meant to send out a loud message: “Let’s switch on! ΟΝ to employment, to creativity, to imagination, to cooperation, to innovation, to solidarity and to improved living conditions.”
At the same time, visitors will have the chance to participate in a virtual tour of the city at the Industrial Gas Museum or have some family fun at the Athens Skywalk action park.
