The Problem by Mind Map: The Problem

1. Financial Crisis hits

1.1. The venues sat neglected as Greece's ballooning debt left no funds for investment and development after the Olympics, which were a $10-billion enterprise

1.2. the country had relatively recently spent millions building lavish stadiums for the 2004 Olympic Games

1.3. The terms of Greece's austerity-laden bailouts from the European Union and the International Monetary Fund mean that the government can't hire the staff needed to run the centers.

2. OAKA Stadium - designed for single use

3. Galatsi Hall - designed for multi-use

3.1. The Galatsi Olympic Hall had been used for table tennis and rhythmic gymnastics in 2004.

3.1.1. According to the Wall Street Journal, it was built at a cost of $61 million, but post-Olympic plans to turn the building into a venue for entertainment never came to fruition. The venue is just one of several that have remained unused in recent years, and Greek authorities are said to be considering whether more could be opened to accommodate refugees.

4. The Refugee Crisis

4.1. Greece has become a key spot on the route to Western Europe for many refugees and migrants. Recent data from the International Office for Migration suggests that more than 218,000 people arrived in Greece between Jan. 1 and Aug. 31, 2015

5. Were the Olympics a good thing for the Greeks?

6. Solution possibilities

6.1. Before Construction

6.2. During Construction

6.3. After Construction
