#iSTANDfor Digital Platform and Campaign

Launched by the Onassis Foundation USA on the occasion of the Antigone Now Festival

Inspired by the story of Antigone, the #iSTANDfor campaign and website aim to encourage young people around the world to engage with each other in order to support common causes—whether social, economic, or environmental—and share stories of inspiration and change via their social media channels. More importantly, #iSTANDfor spotlights and celebrates the young women and men whose individual and collective acts are changing our world for the better. Using the ancient Greek story of Antigone to promote a deeper understanding of how Hellenic culture has shaped and enriched our modern-day value system, the #iSTANDfor campaign will jumpstart a dialogue among teens and young adults from the U.S. and around the world.
