A weekly newsletter, exclusive for our community.

Since its inception in 2015, AthensLive has emerged as Greece’s first non-profit news organization in response to two identified needs; the need for independent and dynamic journalism in an unstable media landscape, and the representation of a Greek narrative in the international debate. AthensLive has grown out of the experience of a continuous crisis and is part of an emerging social, cultural and political response.

AthensLive established itself in 2016 as a source of quality digital journalism for an international audience, with funds raised through one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in Greece. More than 500 donations came from over 30 countries, including Germany, Greece, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands and Austria.
