#betterworld
A world of equal opportunities
and of equal access to technology.
A world free of inequalities; a better world for all. The first step towards its creation is to acknowledge inequality all around us; and that’s what we did. Different people from all over Greece participated in the Privilege Walk, an experiential practice which demonstrates the way that circumstances and privileges in our life affect our course and evolution.

I. WATCH THEIR EXPERIENCE
 
EXPERIENTIAL PRACTICE
 
About 80 people, unknown to each other, got together to participate in an experiential practice they had no idea about.
Throughout the practice, each person followed a personal, distinct course; just the way it happens in real life.

II. LEARN ABOUT THE PRIVILEGE WALK
 
PRIVILEGE WALK
 
What is the Privilege Walk?
Being an experiential practice, the Privilege Walk is an internationally recognized educational figurative method which aims at the highlighting of social inequalities and at the realization of the way they occur.

More specifically, the Privilege Walk is a practice during which various participants from different strands of life stand one next to the other, forming a straight line. A moderator makes statements related to circumstances, situations and properties and asks the participants to take a step forward every time they listen to a statement that is relevant to them.
 
Once all the statements have been made, it becomes clear that:

• The social course of each individual is associated with the circumstances of his/her life
• Circumstances create different opportunities for each individual and thus lead to social inequalities

OUR STANDPOINT
 
How can COSMOTE
contribute to a better world?
We all want a world where we can have the opportunities necessary to improve our quality of life, overcome any obstacles and make the most of today. In order to make this world come true, we need technology which – through the possibilities it offers us – can promote not only communication, but also education, entrepreneurship, new ideas, health and other aspects of our life.
 
The mission of COSMOTE is to contribute to the creation of this world by making technology accessible to everyone, regardless of location or age. As, by using technology to our advantage, we can make the most of the opportunities of our times, make our dreams come true and build a different world. A better world, for all.
