During the parallel events of the exhibition "Imagine the city: Pyrgos 2013" organized by Architecture for Humanity Athens Chapter, the primary schools of the Ilia region were invited to send us drawings, models and any other media showing how the kids imagined their city or the yard of their school. All the media that we received, is exhibited in the Conference Center of the Ilia Region in Pyrgos city. Also, some teachers with their pupils were invited to visit the exhibition and let the kids design in situ their proposals.
The opening ceremony of the exhibition "Imagine the city: Pyrgos 2013" organized by Architecture for Humanity Athens was held last Thursday at Latseion Megaron of Pyrgos. It was a great success as many of the citizens of Pyrgos, as well as citizens of the greater region of Ilia, as well as the Mayor of Pyrgos, the mayor of Pineios municipality and the Deputy Westen Greece County Governor were present.

Yesterday we received the good news that we were awarded a booth at Expo construction.
It has been four years since we started to work for vulnerable communities in Colombia and it is time to raise awareness the great work we all have achieved and what we can do for people all around the country.
The problem we do not know what to do in the 10 square meters at the fair and we only have two weeks to organize.
So we hope that you, once again, put the shirt and help us build a better country.
Help us with innovative ideas for the booth.
