“First we need to care about the Planet, then the People, and after about Profit”. APIVITA co-founder, Nikos Koutsianas, welcomed CYA’s Political Economy in a Historical Context: From Ancient Greece to Modern Greek Crises class with these words, while on a tour of their Industrial Park. APIVITA means “Life of Bees” and in their headquarters, strategically named “The Bee Hive” students learned from Koutsianas about the “APIVITA way of life.” This life revolves around “strong philosophy, values, social responsibility, heritage, and an innovative outlook.”
