CYA’s 2nd Annual Student Conference, Concepts of Urban Design and Public Space in Greece Throughout the Ages took place on May 2 -3, 2018.
The Annual CYA Student Conference is a long inspired dream of our academic community and reflects CYA’s dedication to building strong academic foundations for our students. The success of the 2nd Conference indicates that the annual event will become a tradition for our institution.
This year’s CYA Voula Field School excavation focused on the ruins of a large Agora, and its architectural remains at the site of Aixonidai Halai, one of the ten demes of Attica in the coastal suburb of Voula. CYA students helped uncover more information about the area, and presented the results of their findings at the Annual Voula Dig Conference, which took place at the CYA Academic Centre on the 27th of March, 2018.
Twenty-two CYA spring ’18 students with a keen interest in politics, globalization and world affairs had the unique opportunity to attend the Delphi Economic Forum. Now in its third year, it has been loosely described as Greece’s “mini Davos’.

In 2017, the Greek daily newspaper Kathimerini featured a story on CYA and the background of its founder, Ismene Phylactopoulou, “a 15-year-old girl who crossed the Aegean as a refugee in a small boat 95 years ago, who would become one of Greece’s leading cultural and educational ambassadors.”
