Summer Schools for Greek children, children from European high Schools and from Schools in America, Australia and Asia

The project named “Summer Schools for Greek children, children from European high Schools and from Schools in America, Australia and Asia” is being organized by Onassis Foundation non profit Cultural Centre in collaboration with National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The summer schools are intended for children from schools in Greece, classical and general high schools in Europe, and schools in America, Australia and Asia. They are intended to promote the study of Greek language and civilization. The courses will offer the participants a variety of topics, allowing them to study the various disciplines and subjects associated with the general spirit of the Academy, while also learning about contemporary Greece and its people.

Through the active collaboration of groups of students the courses will offer a valuable tool for social and cultural development and learning through direct experience. The students will be introduced to the history, literature, philosophy and civilization of Greece, from ancient times to the present day. The material will be attractively presented using contemporary methods such as workshops, study groups, visits to places of cultural, archaeological and architectural interest, sports, talks by teachers and lecturers, open discussions with museum directors, experts in art conservation, writers, directors, photographers and other specialists. The courses will be taught in two two-week cycles, and will be open to young people aged 15 to 18. The programme is to run for three years, from 2012 to 2014.

The project is being implemented in frame of the project Academy of Plato: Development of Knowledge and Innovative Ideas” which is co-financed from National and Εuropean Funds through the operational program “Education and Lifelong Learning”
