"Fryktoria: Paving the way for the citizens of tomorrow"
Antirropon's team invites you to join us in forming together a series of actions
aiming at strengthening the "voice" of youth when it comes to issues that concern them.
ANTIRROPON NGO is implementing the project “FRYKTORIA: Paving the way for the citizens of tomorrow” in collaboration with the UNESCO Club for Culture of Peace, with the contribution of the Council of Europe and the participation of the Ombudsman for Children in specific meetings/discussions with teenagers.
Main target of the “Fryktoria” Project is to make teenagers familiar with their civil rights and their obligations according to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Children (1989).
Young people participating in the Project come from different cultural groups.
Through this unique experience and this innovative Project, participants will be motivated to think through various social issues that influence not only them, but their school society or family. Young people will be able to contribute to the creation of a better school environment, to learn how to claim their rights, to be independent, to participate in democratic processes in order for them to grow more mature and to feel more secure in their societies.
- Experiential Workshops that allow teenagers to interact and get to know each other.
- Pupil Councils that will put forward teenager-initiated requests for the local authorities.
- The creation of an electronic platform (forum), that will enable teenagers exchange views with other school communities, and facilitate the dissemination of the best practices for the creation of suitable coexistence conditions.
- The publication of an album with projects, pictures and essays of the participants, aiming at informing the public and raising awareness.
- A Forum Theater (Social and Political theater) workshop.
- The hosting of a festival, where the impressions of the teenagers participating in the Project and the conclusion of their participation will be presented to the public, alongside a performance from the Forum Theater workshops.
This project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Grants Greek NGO Programme “We are all Citizens”. The Bodossaki Foundation is the Fund Operator of this Programme. The Programme aims at strengthening civil society and enhancing the contribution of NGOs to social justice, democracy and sustainable development.
