Intercultural initiatives of the University of Patras for refugee children
The 7th Children's Festival of the University of Patras expanded its horizons to include young refugees. Thirty refugee children visited the University of Patras and enjoyed moments of carefree play and learning together with hundreds of other children from kindergartens and nurseries around Patras. The University of Patras will participate in the ELDW for the second consecutive time and is part of the Intercultural Cities Network, an ELDW partner. In addition, a public discussion on the refugee crisis in Greece and Europe was organised under the auspices of the Baristers’ Association in Patras, Greece, on 2 April 2016.
