In March 2017, the ‘Colouring Positive Energy’ programme, implemented with the collaboration of UrbanAct under the sponsorship of Amita Motion, was completed with a horizontal mural on the wall of Panellinios G.S. on Evelpidon st. This pictorial composition was created by five young artists whose works were distinguished in the framework of a competition organised in collaboration with public and private schools of Visual and Applied Arts. Sympraxis Team undertook the planning and coordination not only of the specific activity, but of the overall programme, which included the implementation of two more big murals in the Municipality of Athens, at 77 Lenorman st. and at 58 Ilia Iliou avenue. With this programme, three central locations in Athens were visually transformed, transmitting optimism and Positive energy to the city’s inhabitants.
Following a last quite intensive period, the QUALICHeCK project, addressing compliance of building energy performance certificates and relevant quality of construction works, was successfully closed in end of February 2017. With 10 new field studies and an extensive literature review quantifying the status on the ground, an analysis of 30 relevant good practices and structured guidance for the development of effective compliance frameworks, QUALICHeCK raises awareness and urges building professionals to “do what they declare”. Bringing compliance and quality issues in the spotlight by engaging authority and key stakeholders in discussions, both at national (concertation activities and roadshows in 9 countries) and at EU level (16 webinars, exchange with BUILD UP Skills and EPBD Concerted Action, 4 Platform meetings, 4 conferences and 4 technology workshops), QUALICHeCK formed an inspiration for, or has even directly influenced, the development of national approaches in several countries. Cumulatively QUALICHeCK has reached about 10,000 stakeholders over its 3 years duration. Sympraxis Team was responsible for the engagement and communication activities and has played a key role in general project management and day to day facilitation of the work.
In 2016, there was a significant increase of almost 22% in the annual collection of blood units during the implementation of OTE Group’s Voluntary Blood Donation programme. This increases the number of potential beneficiaries to more than 6,000 individuals! More specifically, the blood donation results for 2016 were 2,090 blood units compared to 1,710 units for 2015. In April 2017, the programme continued with even greater expectations for better results in blood units collection. On behalf of OTE Group, Sympraxis Team has undertaken the planning and implementation of the internal communication campaign, the basic concept of which is the life bond that is created between the volunteer blood donor and the person who uses the blood.
