American Spaces in Greece partner with the U.S. Embassy and Consulate General in Thessaloniki to engage Greek citizens through technological, cultural, and educational programs that increase people-to-people engagement and economic development in ways that instill good will and understanding between the people of the United States and Greece and inspire collaboration around shared values.
The U.S. Mission to Greece has five American Spaces in our countrywide network. The most recent addition is the Thessaloniki American Space (aka the Thessaloniki TechLab) hosted by non-profit educational organization EduAct, located at Thessaloniki YMCA Complex.
Thessaloniki TechLab – EduAct organization
Xanthi TechLab – Xanthi Cultural Center
Veria TechLab – Veria Central Public Library
Sparti TechLab – Sparti Central Public Library

Our American Spaces are all referred to as TechLabs and are structured as maker spaces that focus on technology, innovation, and the development of STEM skills. These Spaces serve as platforms for regional engagement and host programming in support of the Mission’s Integrated Country Strategy goals, including combatting youth unemployment. They are also conducting program to incorporate the Six Pillars of the American Spaces program that include:
