GREECE – Following the 2017 success, the team of oikotimes.com filmed the 2018 reviews and reactions of some of its members for the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest entries. The members watched 15 specific entries decided by the oikotimes.com team based on general appealing and got their reactions.
Why the Impact Hub Athens reactions video might be interesting you? Well the basic reason is that the members selected (if not all of the community) has nothing to do with the Eurofan community. They barely know what the Eurovision Song Contest is. They are definitely non-Eurovision fans if not mocking it.

From social inclusion and social integration to environment and fair trade, the Impact Hub Athens is engaging expertise from its worldwide presence and creating a net of intercultural, high impact community that acts locally and internationally.
