Open Schools enables school buildings across Athens to remain open to the public on weeknights and weekends, offering a wide array of recreation, culture, education and sports related activities for all age groups.

Maintenance works were carried out on 25 participating schools; including graffiti removal, mending fences and installing safer, new court surfaces in schoolyards. Security and cleaning services are provided by the program, ensuring smooth operation during regular school hours.
