This 3-day accredited educational trip to Athens is a combination of site visits, lectures & workshops as well as meetings with local place managers (local partnerships, markets, town centre revewal, local initiatives, local tourism etc.). Athens is a particularly interesting case study as Place Management here takes place in an extended economic crisis with the voluntary sector often taking over the role of both state and private sector.
Themes: Re-branding Greece; Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Economic Development and Tourism in Athens; Retailing and Markets; Citizen Participation.
The Study Tour will be hosted by Dr Ares Kalandides, Professor Cathy Parker and Professor Simon Quin.
