In 2019, the first week of European Culture in Athens was organized by members of the EUNIC network, who presented a program with several events and commune actions on the matter of multiculturalism. In 2020, the second edition focuses on sustainability, on awareness-raising on the impact of human activity on the environment, on knowledge sharing and on good practices. The fundamental threads of this European week are climate change, dangers of sustainability and realistic commitments and solutions.
