October 2018 was the month that the first NEMESIS co-creation labs launched in three schools in Thessaloniki. Co-creation labs aim at helping students to understand how social problems can be transformed into challenges! Also, how students through collective efforts can bring positive change! Alexander Theodoridis, a passionate Social Innovation Practitioner, was there to inspire students and introduce them to Social Innovation. Students collaborated with teachers, parents and our Social Innovator and co-created empathy maps in relation to local sustainability challenges. For more information please check our NEMESIS project website.
On the 30th of June and 1st of July, we are hosting the first Change Shapers programme in Greece. The program aims to: EMPOWER young people to be change shapers by bettering understanding concepts of power, their ability to influence and through learning social activism skills. SHAPE positive social change in local communities by strengthening community voices and increasing the diversity of these voices to include migrants and young people. INTEGRATE migrants into their local communities by creating opportunities for migrants and local citizens to learn from one another and their diverse skills, experiences and backgrounds. The program is free of charge to attend, so apply now: https://changeshapers.org/apply-1
