The Athens the Authentic Marathon, Run Greece city road races, the Alexander the Great International Marathon and many other street races are firmly on the annual WIND Running Team’s calendar.
Social Product Despite the rapid technological development and the humanitarian crisis characteristic of our era, at WIND we believe that technology, when used properly, can help vulnerable social groups. By acting on our beliefs, we contribute to covering their telecommunications needs aiming to reduce social isolation. Through our network, our subscribers can support directly Non-Governmental Organizations, such as SOS Childrens’, Arc of the World, ELEPAP, Make a Wish Greece, Apostoli and The Smile of the Child Villages, Social Contribution Lines or otherwise through the I Offer service – a joint charitable initiative of the three mobile telephony operators in Greece. Alongside, our subscribers are able to use Help Lines 1056- Amber Alert Hellas and SOS Line for The Smile of the Child and 116000 – European Help Line for Children. Through our network, we provide our subscribers the option of free calls to emergency numbers such as 100, 166, 199, 112, 197 and 108, even in case of barriers due to debts.
AwarenessKids@safety: Internet, Mobile and Child
We acknowledge the need for parents, teachers and children to be constantly and properly informed about new technologies, we have been implementing the Kids@safety awareness campaign since 2010, focusing on the need to familiarize with new technologies and ways to address the challenges of digital world.The campaign also highlights the importance of promoting the positive aspects of new technologies as tools in our daily lives and encouraging the dialogue between children and parents on the safe use of the Internet. The basic axis of the campaign kids@safety is the website: www.kidsatsafety.gr, supplemented by the respective social media sites on Facebook & Twitter that expand the channels of communication and utilize the advantages of the digital era in information and communication.
We come closer
Applying our longstanding commitment - as a high end technology provider - for equal access for all Greeks to the unlimited possibilities of communication and new technologies, primarily as social goods, we invest in the digital transformation of our country.
At a time when new horizons in terms of economy and society emerge from the use of technology in the digitally "grey" areas of Greece, it becomes easier to see that islands such as Anafi, Sikinos and Ai Stratis are experiencing an uneven digital reality. This was the primary purpose of the "We come closer" program that concerns the "telco adoption" of all inhabitants of those remote islands of our country.
Remoted islands where transport access is extremely difficult, especially during the winter months and lacking modern digital infrastructure, were included in the program since late 2015 until 2018. We visited these islands, created state-of-the-art 4G infrastructure and then offer free communication to all residents for a whole year. It is worth noting that the upgrading of the 4G network to the remoted islands is part of the next-generation infrastructure planned by WIND under its 5-year investment plan for mobile and fixed telephony worth 500 million Euros.
In particular, our donation includes a smartphone for younger people, including school teachers, police and doctor, as well as a simple-to-operate device for those over the age of 65. Recognizing that the "incubator" of digital skills is the school, we offer to all school students (primary and secondary education) a high-tech laptop equipped with free wireless internet through our network. But also a pre-installed f-secure parental control program.
In an effort to make a positive contribution to the everyday lives and work of residents in remoted areas, improving their living throughout the year, we make communication and connectivity the foundation of the new digital reality. We offer communication and digital access for free. For all. For a whole year.
Because, it is our commitment to.... Come closer. Enjoy our travelogue on Youtube
