The ‘Issues that Matter: Greek and Turkish Dialogue Podcast Series’ aims to contribute to the better understanding between the Greek and Turkish public opinions on issues and themes that resonate with the global political agenda. The aim of the project is to focus on global issues, trends and challenges such as climate change, energy, women’s empowerment, start-ups and digitalization, which can have an impact on both countries and beyond. Rather than focusing on areas of Greek-Turkish “high politics,” this project aims to bring together experts, public opinion leaders, artists, influencers, and activists to think about and reflect together on issues concerning both countries but attracting less attention than they deserve.

The project will produce ten (10) podcast episodes (30 minutes each) between May and December 2022 with the assistance of PodFresh, to be broadcast via ELIAMEP, FNF and other relevant podcast channels with the aim to reach a wider international audience.

Project Coordinators: Eylem Yanardağoğlu and Ioannis N. Grigoriadis
