The Training Course will focus on Community Building and Development. It will be held in Skoulikaria and Athens and will use experiential learning, peer-learning, motivation and spontaneous informal learning combining the experiences of all partners and participants.
The “Grapes of Wrath” Training Course tackles three interconnected issues: crisis, community and learning/ education. Given the different cultural backgrounds of the participants, the Training Course will function as a preparatory intercultural experience where the basic principles of a non-formal session will be provided on the basis of a multicultural learning concerning language, differences, similarities, stereotypes, etc.
Content & Aims
