Greece of our Heart
Hellasdiaspora.com was created by and operates under the auspices of the University of Patras, and concerns all Greek men and women, no matter where they live, either in Greece, or anywhere else in the world.
Our vision is to create a place where Greek men and women can communicate freely, overcoming barriers of dispersion, or national borders.
Alongside, through Hellasdiaspora.com we aspire to create a place that can offer information to Greek people living and working abroad about problems related to employment, or settlement issues.
Just like Diogenes, carrying a lantern, was searching for a human being, in the same way, through Hellasdiaspora.com, we seek for the Greeks that are dispersed throughout the world. We aim to preserve the values, traditions and ideals of Greece of our hearts. To this end, we have begun an international academic research project, in order to scan similarities and cultural peculiarities of Hellas Diasporans. The international character of this research necessitates collaboration among University research teams throughout the world. In the linked Section you can find a small piece of our international academic research collaboration.
Hellasdiaspora.com calls everyone for participation in open dialogue, exchange of ideas, customs, traditions and research for opportunities of innovation and occupation. Together we can create an Agora, with its ancient sense, where everyone could exchange ideas freely and expand opportunitie’s horizons
If you are Greek, or feel as Greek and have Greek origin, you may register to be a member of our website. This page is largely self-administered. In this sence, its value grows with the growth of the number of visitors that use and recommend this website to Greek originated friends and acquaintances.
