About Us


The eAkrounta project was materialized in 2022 by the Youth Club of Akrounta team. Marking the occasion of the Youth Clubs’s 40-year establishment and as a continuation of its consistent contribution towards the community, the volunteers have decided to take a step forward and integrate the community into the modern digital era through the implementation of the eAkrounta project. The project got designed by the volunteers of the Akrounta Youth Club with the objective of creating a digital archive relating to the community history while simultaneously constituting a source of information for current affairs, actions, and events. All these get summarized within a webpage linked to QR codes in various parts of the village.

The eAkrounta project receives funding from the “European Solidarity Corps” and falls under “Digital Reformation”. The aim of the project is for the present website to constitute the community’s official website, which the youth have designed and materialized to offer both to their community as well as to the general public. With eAkrounta, the community is transitioning into the modern digital era.

During the implementation of the project, the team members researched Akrounta’s history, discussed with older residents and community agencies, collected and digitalized old photographs and other historical material, and traced the village’s places of interest with the purpose of recording and highlighting them. As a result, signs with QR codes were placed in selected points of interest, connecting visitors with the website for further information while also allowing them to view old photographs of the specific place and more. Finally, within the framework of the project, a short documentary is also under creation, which contains memoirs of the community’s residents and pictures that exhibit both the natural beauty of our village and the places with historical and cultural value.
