Welcome Greece and new Country Director Theodoros Bamparoutsis

Coming from a sporting family background, (his father being an Olympian and having been an athlete himself), Theo Bamparoutsis has grown up with the Olympic ideals and sportsmanship values that followed him throughout his life and professional career. Fair Play was an unconditional status that he has followed as an athlete and as a professional.

The Non-Violence Project movement was an inspirational trigger for Theo to activate his expertise in the field of Human Resources in mega events and channel it into something that can impact the youth through knowledge and empowerment of young individuals through a Non-Violent future!

Greece, in its ancient years, was applying the Olympic Truce for the period of the ancient Olympic Games, bringing everyone together to celebrate this major event and leaving behind their conflicts. In recent years, Greece has witnessed a rise in different forms of violence (bullying at schools and at workplaces, violence in sports, hate speech, domestic violence, gender based violence, racism, etc.).

As governments focus on short term solutions, Theo has identified that only long term initiatives can start bringing results starting from educating young people and building awareness to the society and it is through this that The Non-Violence Project is currently re-established in Greece bringing together its multi years expertise in violence prevention courses.

A warm welcome to Greece and Theodoros Bamparoutsis!
