Break The Couch: Kick off

Welcome to our new blog!

We are happy to announce the official kick off of the Break The Couch initiative.

Break The Couch

Why Break The Couch?

A couch is like a modern symbol of laziness and passiveness and is perfectly combined with watching TV where you can’t react nor participate. On the other hand, today there are opportunities that technology has given us. As a team of ambitious people located in Athens we decided to stand up from the couch and also brake it!

We have decided to create, to get involved, to act, to learn and to influence others while working with video and new media

What you will find here?

In this blog you will find video initiatives and productions we got involved as a team. Nowadays we are working on several media projects that we will share them with you through this site. Currently you will find posted two old projects we created before we form officially the Break The Couch team. Soon new updates will be posted here and and we hope that they will surprise you positively.

Earth Hour has been always very interesting on our way of thinking. To our mentality people doing something similar on the same time is really impressive and chaotic. Adding the value that they are doing it for a good cause makes it perfect for us. Therefore we always wanted to do something on this newly implemented special day of the world’s calendar.

Our participation during the years was just to turn off the lights and promote many local events through Social Media. This year was a bit different for us since some weeks before the Earth hour of 2012 one of our team members Vasilis came up with an amazing idea. For the last year we have been involved among others in the Social Media promotion of the “I Love Kypseli” initiative which is “a non-partisan initiative that started from the association of “Cafe Bar Restaurants of Kypseli” with the goal to upgrade the part of Athens were we live and work”. Today it is supported by many local groups and citizen organizations. Read the rest of this entry
