Walking together: Intercultural routes in the city of Volos with the participation of young refugees from ARSIS shelter in Makrinitsa, students from the University of Thessaly and students from the Second Chance School of Volos

The final event of the project “Walking together…” will take place on Saturday 2 November 2019, at 10.30 in the amphitheatre “Kordatos” of the University of Thessaly. This year long project aimed at developing the intercultural communication and empathy through a series of well-planned non formal activities. The project that was implemented in the framework of the European programme Seeds for Integration, was jointly coordinated by the Second Chance School of Volos, the Department of Early Childhood Education of the University of Thessaly and the NGO ARSIS and the participants came from all three organisations. The group of the project cooperated and implemented seven different routes, four in the city of Volos and three in the surrounding natural mountain trails. Every route focused on a specific theme (everyday life, refugees’ life, literature, history etc.) and worked as a trigger for the development of intercultural communication and exchange among the participants in the framework of critical intercultural education and experiential learning. In the final event, there will be a detailed presentation of all the activities and the final products of the project.
