Κύτταρο Εναλλακτικών Αναζητήσεων Νέων- Cell of Alternative Youth Activities
KEAN is an inclusive youth society. The organisation's main goal is to pursue activities leading to the improvement of the quality of life focusing on the protection of the environment including the promotion of new technologies, youth education and youth rights. In KEAN we strongly believe that quality of life presupposes the existence of a healthy participatory democratic society. As such KEAN devotes special attention to include activities that support social minorities and disadvantaged social groups in their fights against discrimination, racism and violence. In short we understand the promotion of ‘quality of life’ as a broader issue, which includes the protection of the environment, an informed youth with strong education and a participatory society.
KEAN works like a cell; like the cell that breaks and multiplies KEAN creates new ‘Cells’ that equally inspire one another. Every ‘cell’- branch is a separate entity, within the frame of the organisation. It raises issues that preoccupy its members and communicates them to the other ’Cells’. It realises activities and can receive support from all of KEAN’s members. As such it builds its own agenda on local issues while following and participating to the universal thematic topics decided by the organisation. Each ‘Cells’ goal is to function independently and autonomously with several degrees of freedom on the local issues while mobilising for the broader ones
