The Athens Municipality is providing more ways to provide direct and effective information to its citizens.
Through the popular app Viber, any citizen or professional who wants to know what is happening in the Greek capital can now register with the official Viber community of the Municipality of Athens and receive its most important and interesting news: upcoming and current actions and events in the city, available digital services, ongoing projects in Athens, open invitations for proposals, free activities for young and old, information regarding stray animals, etc.
At the same time, citizens can browse through the interviews and statements of the municipal authorities regarding the most important issues of the municipality. Moreover, citizens participating in the Viber group of the Municipality of Athens will be able to take part in polls on issues concerning the city.
The Municipality of Athens is the first municipality in the country to undertake such an initiative, utilising the communication potential of the specific application to come into more direct contact with the citizen.
“Our contact with the citizens and professionals of Athens is becoming more and more direct, more and more essential. Through this new ‘vehicle’ of communication that we are implementing, citizens can now not only be updated quickly on any useful information concerning the city, but also contribute with their opinion to everyday issues. We therefore invite the women and men of Athens to join this new digital community of the municipality, helping us to become even more efficient,” the mayor of Athens, Kostas Bakoyannis, said in a statement.
