Event for the Completion of the Educational Program “I Care and Act”
08 December 2018

A special event took place on December 8th, for the completion of the “I Care and Act” program that is being implemented in schools across the country, with the aim of cultivating voluntary social contribution and active participation in public life among the wider school community.

The program is being implemented for the third consecutive year by the nonprofit organization Desmos and the Lambrakis Foundation, with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The event included a presentation of the results of the activities that were implemented as part of the program, by teachers and students. The cleaning of public spaces, collecting food and clothes for refugees, giving blood and participating in social kitchens were only some of the actions in which the students participated, with the goal of taking initiative, developing partnerships with local actors, and assuming an active role within society. Educational visits also took place, along with training seminars for teachers and the creation of educational material.
