Get Involved was created in Autumn 2017 and is a youth-led initiative with the purpose of developing economic literacy at an interdisciplinary level, using modern and experiential education methods. Our primary goal is to promote lifelong learning. In order to achieve that, we organize a series of activities and create partnerships aimed to educate young students of all academic levels on contemporary economic issues.
Get Involved Initiatives:
The Simulation Conference of the European Central Bank, unique at a European level, serves as Get Involved’s main event and takes place every December. It is a conference for students of all academic levels and aims to educate young students from the fields of Economics, Law, and International and European studies on contemporary economic issues. Moreover, it helps students understand the importance of monetary policy in our daily lives and the role of the ECB in the economy.
Intelligence is the result of the combination of the projects developed by Get Involved’s scientific team. It consists of three main initiatives, namely
• The ESG Insights,
• The Infographics Projects and,
• The Synopsis of the Economic Bulletin of the ECB.
All these initiatives have the common goal of providing comprehensive information on contemporary economic issues and highlighting economic reality from different perspectives. Each Intelligence project is distinct from the others, in terms of subject and publication schedule.
To achieve the goal of promoting economic literacy in an interactive way, Get Involved has undertaken a number of initiatives, such as the organization of scientific events, the writing of the Economic Definitions Index and the organization of workshops. At the same time, calibrating our plan in the context of digital transformation, we developed the Polymnia digital platform, which acts as an internal social networking and communication tool for the participants, in order to host online events.
Get Involved’s principles revolve around the promotion of teamwork, meritocracy, and the growth of individuals and their ideas through healthy cooperation and mutual respect. Believing in the concept of diversity, Get Involved’s team is made up of people from different scientific backgrounds, recognizing the added value of a different approach. What unites the group is the members’ common aspiration to contribute to society and empower young scientists.
The main pillar of Get Involved’s strategy is the continuous and parallel development of both the organization and its members. At the same time, its vertical and horizontal operation ensures a holistic approach and involvement of the members in its projects.
Openness And Partnerships:
A key pillar of Get Involved’s culture is the development of strategic partnerships to continuously improve its footprint.
Get Involved consults the members of its Advisory Board, which consists of distinguished academics and professionals, for all of its initiatives and projects.
Finally, Get Involved’s projects have been recognized by institutional bodies and the market. In particular, the 5th Simulation Conference of the European Central Bank was recognized and supported by the Bank of Greece, the Hellenic Banking Association, the Region of Attica, the Hellenic Development Bank and PwC Greece.
