Athens 2004 Organizing Committee President Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki, addressing 25 mayors and municipal representatives from the Attica prefecture on Tuesday, the so-called "Olympic municipalities" since they host installations and training centers concerning the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, called for mobilization and cooperation.
Daskalaki said the meeting was the first of a series of meetings to also be held with the remaining municipalities in Attica, as well as with many municipalities from other parts of Greece.
"Our purpose, as an Organizing Committee, is double. We are preparing Athens for the games and, at the same time, projects and actions for the 'day after.' We want many of the things we will be doing for the games to stay in the capital as a deposit of the Olympic Games and for the sake of its inhabitants," Daskalaki said.
