Human rights Education for an inclusive Greek school community (INCLUSIVE). The project aims at the inclusion of refugee students in the Greek school community.

Under the project ANTIGONE runs workshops in primary schools, secondary schools and lyceums broadly in Thessaloniki for the sensitization of students on human rights with a particular emphasis on refugees and displaced persons rights, while at the same time ANTIGONE has a stable presence in afternoon schools (DYEP) working with refugee students on team building and peaceful cooperation.

Concerning the preparation of teaching community, ANTIGONE runs intercultural education training seminars addressing teachers and official educational actors as well as sensitization seminars for parents.

The project is an attempt to prepare both local community and the newcomer groups of young refugees to live together in an environment of tolerance, in terms of mutual respect and understanding.
