Via Egnatia

October 24, 2018

Via Egnatia

For millennia, the Via Egnatia (1120 km) was the major economic and cultural artery between East and West, between Constantinople and Rome. Its trajectory runs through nowadays Greece, Albania, Macedonia and (European) Turkey.

This region now faces the combined challenges of refugee flows, illiberal regimes and talent drain. Our aim is to improve local community health and resilience by fostering clusters of social start-ups that together harness the cultural and natural heritage of this region. This way, we hope to turn the Via Egnatia into a prime destination for eco-tourism and provide a stable source of income for the local communities.

Fronterra is currently exploring several potential projects along the Via Egnatia.

The goal of climbing big mountains should be to attain some sort of spiritual and personal growth, but this won’t happen if you compromise away the entire process.
