Through the Jazz Solidarity Network and the up-coming Outta Climate Festival, CIVINET Greece-Cyprus is raising awareness around the climate crisis, sustainable mobility and connecting these topics to quality cultural events.
Jazz Solidarity Network
CIVINET Greece-Cyprus recently launched the Jazz Solidarity Network. The new entity will be part of the wider ecosystem of our Network, following the best practices of international networks and organizations. The main mission of this non-profit organization is to enrich the activities and upcoming events of CIVINET Greece-Cyprus and its members with high quality cultural events that:
- raise awareness of local communities on the issues of environment, climate crisis, sustainable mobility/development
- highlight the country’s significant artistic potential in the field of jazz, contemporary traditional and improvisational music and other arts. JSN seeks to highlight artists and significant works across all performing and visual arts, poetry and literature.
The artistic community of the Jazz Solidarity Network currently includes over 140 Greek artists, many of them with international career and recognition.

Outta Climate Festival
CIVINET Greece-Cyprus is launching an innovative programme in Greece, with the support and co-financing of the Green Fund and a number of municipalities-members of the Network. The “Outta Climate Festival” campaign tries to link the climate crisis with road safety, vulnerable social groups and culture, using asphalt art, as well as other forms of art.
The Outta Climate Festivals will consist of morning “asphalt art” interventions outside schools and an afternoon cultural programme in central public spaces of each participating city. So far, the programme involves the Region of Attica, Agios Dimitrios, Vari Voula Vouliagmeni, Heraklion Crete, Hersonissos, Karpenisi and Veria.
The implementation of the asphalt art interventions will be carried out by the internationally renowned artist Soteur, with active participation of the students of each school. The afternoon cultural programme will include student bands, as well as high quality performances for adults by the Jazz Solidarity Network artists.
Outta Climate Festival’s first events will take place in September & November 2023 in Agios Dimitrios and Vari Voula Vouliagmeni (Athens Metropolitan Area).
