“COVID-19 is the new guy in town, or rather the whole world. It is not even an electronic virus that would devastate computer servers wreaking havoc on social media and financial networks, defence systems and telecommunications.

Kostakos argues that the measures taken and the resources mobilized by governments in the effort to contain the virus and reduce fatalities can only be compared to efforts on many fronts during World War II.
ELIAMEP and FOGGS have established the Hellenic Forum for Sustainable Development.
