Social Dynamo is a space for civil society capacity building, offering learning, professional support and networking. It is a joint initiative of the Bodossaki Foundation and the City of Athens, providing comprehensive support to civil society actors in Greece.
Why “Social Dynamo”?
Because just as a dynamo accumulates and transforms energy, Social Dynamo seeks to highlight and develop the skills of Non-Governmental Organisations and active citizen groups though the transfer of know-how and the provision of opportunities for cooperation and networking.
What we offer
√ Learning: We offer educational events and training seminars to civil society organisations and groups, with the assistance of our pro bono partners’ network.

- communication and marketing;
- human resources management;
- leadership and management issues;
- financial management; and
- legal issues.
√ Networking: Social Dynamo encourages networking and the exchange of information among civil society, scholars and the public and private sector. Such networking is achieved through events organised on a regular basis.
√ Co-working space: Our team hosts informal and formal new and developing active citizen groups, offering a co-working space in the fastest-developing and most modern hub in Athens, the Serafio Sports, Culture and Innovation Centre. Our warm and friendly space hosts up to 15 groups for 6 months, while the hosting can be renewed according to the needs and the progress of the group. This space can also be used to host events organized by civil society organisations/groups.
