Day two of our Global Street Paper Summit packed a punch! Delegates spent the day learning more about other street papers, including how to campaign, creating projects for vendors and how to use marketing and social media to boost their profile.
The afternoon saw delegates attend optional activities, including a visit to Eleonas Refugee Camp. At night the INSP Awards celebrated the excellence and innovation across our street paper network.
Here is how the day went in pictures.
INSP 2016 day two kicked off with a packed day of sessions and visits.
In the morning delegates gathered on the roof of the Onassis Cultural Centre. The rooftop overlooks the Acropolis and the surround city of Athens.
The Big Issue Australia’s National Marketing and Communications Manager Emma O’Halloran and social media marketing specialist Lefteris Koulonis talked to delegates about how to best utilise social media and marketing to boost a street paper.

Delegates walked past artwork on the walls of the Onassis Cultural Centre as they made their way to a session.
After lunch an innovation and impact session by 180 Moires and Design Thinkers Greece encouraged delegates to discuss the problems they collectively face, and use an evidence-planning tool to help find a solution.
Vendor retention and rogue street papers were amongst the topics raised. A group discussed how to recruit new vendors and used the evidence planning tool to brainstorm how tackle this problem.
Street papers often face challenges trying to address the public perception of their vendors. This session gave delegates the opportunity to hear from street papers that have been trying to drive real change.
