U.S. Embassy joined forces with Women on Top and the General Secretariat for Gender Equality (Γενική Γραμματεία Οικογενειακής Πολιτικής και Ισότητας των Φύλων) to kick off this year’s WOMEN (Women’s Organizations Meet-up for Education and Networking), a skills development and networking program for non-profit organizations active in the field of gender equality and women's empowerment in Greece.

The U.S. Embassy in Athens is excited to announce the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) program! This program offers a scholarship opportunity for selected Greek students to travel to the United States for one year and stay with a host family, while attending an American high school.  Our first nine FLEX scholars are currently studying at various schools in the United States after departing in August 2019.

For the 2020 – 2021 school year, ten (10) scholarships will be offered to Greek students

Marianna Economou’s inspiring film ”When Tomatoes Met Wagner” has been chosen to represent Greece at the 92nd Academy Awards on February 9, 2020.
The documentary relates the story of a near-deserted Greek village in Thessaly rescued by organic tomatoes — and Wagner.

A wooden sculpture adorns the opposite bank of the Statue of Liberty in New York. This work belongs to the Greek artist Kostis Velonis and depicts an amphitheater symbolizing the form he had in Ancient Greece.

The large-scale sculpture “Life Without Tragedy” was developed with architect Christian Kotzamanis and initially created for the acclaimed Onassis Festival 2019 in New York, basically bringing two basic notions where Greece was legend to the rest of the world, Democracy and the theater. The work consists of three wooden sculptures, reminiscent of an Ancient Greek amphitheater, a place that was a social institution and a place of public political dialogue beyond art.

It’s a birthday party for everyone, young and old. It takes place at fairgrounds and parks, on beaches and streets, and in people’s backyards. It is the Fourth of July — Independence Day — the birthday of the United States of America.

July 4, 1776, was the culmination of a hard-fought battle for Americans’ right to self-governance and democratic rule. The U.S. supports people around the world today fighting for these same freedoms.

Memorial Day honors America’s military men and women who lost their lives in service to their country.

The holiday is observed on the last Monday of May, a time of year when weather is turning warmer and schools and universities are adjourning for summer break.

On May 16, 2019, a new chapter in the Statue’s story opened with the inauguration of the new Statue of Liberty Museum on Liberty Island. The project, for which we provided significant support, has as its primary goal giving people today, and in generations to come, more opportunity to form their own personal connection with the iconic monument.

NASA’s new mission to the moon — which aims to put the first woman on the lunar surface by 2024 — has been named Artemis, after the ancient Greek goddess who was the daughter of Zeus and Leto.

Artemis is the goddess of the moon, as well as being the twin sister of Apollo — after whom NASA’s pioneering moon missions in the 1960s and 1970s were named.
