A world in a suitcase 2016-17

The Greek Guiding Association is running the action "A world in a suitcase" based on the educational program "Refugee flows, human rights and interculturalism", a program that for the first time is being applied in Greek schools, approved by the Greek Ministry of Education and under the auspices of UNHCR. The action’s goal is helping the Greek students, through experiential activities, understand the refugee crisis and develop their compassion regarding the refugees who are fleeing their countries. A main goal is also to bring the students closer to the human rights' values and teach them the way they can promote these values.
