Thousands of Greeks have left the country during the last seven years as a result of continuous recession. Adding up to the thousands of well-educated Greek expats that left before the crisis broke out, they are part of an unprecedented global group of skilled employees and entrepreneurs.
Launched in March 2013 by Nicolas Stamboulopoulos, New Diaspora started out as a digital storytelling platform, focusing on the new generation of Greeks living abroad during the crisis in their homeland. Since then, it has gradually evolved into a participatory channel that records a migration wave as it happens. New Diaspora aims to tell the complex story of a migration wave in real time, and also to engage, connect and inspire dialogue, eventually crystallizing the collective pulse of a "borderless nation."
