The event brought together local authorities, police representatives, security experts, social and institutional bodies, academics, IT experts from the private sector, and other city stakeholders. Through speeches and discussions, the speakers highlighted the project’s innovations and lessons learned, aiming to promote the debate on urban security and the adoption of best practices for the security of public spaces both at the national and European level.
Representatives of the respective Urban Innovative Actions (UIA) European Projects, SURE from the city of Tampere (Finland) and ToNite from the city of Turin (Italy) as well as representatives of international organizations – such as Europe Direct Piraeus, Victim Support Europe and others – provided additional perspectives and insights into the challenges and opportunities of urban security.

Celebrating Citizens' Engagement through Street Art
BeSecure-FeelSecure demonstrates the importance of participatory decision-making, as students were empowered to co-shape their school courtyard with a truly unique design, that reflects their values and priorities.
The project’s graffiti contest winning design, created by the talented Greek graffiti artist Skitsofrenis, was selected by the students of the 13th High School of Piraeus. The design promotes sports and focuses on a basketball and social icon Giannis Antetokounmpo!
