The team of journalism students and young journalists that worked as volunteers in the Press Services department in the "Artemis" Venue offered invaluable services to the organization of the II Mediterranean Beach Games and gained important experience from a major international event.
They were the people that were giving their best every day to keep everyone satisfied: journalists conering the Games, as well as the Press Office.
They are students from Panteion University of Athens, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece and other state and private schools, but also young journalists. They declared themselves volunteers to the II Mediterranean Games for just one reason: their love for journalism.
