The HOU is launching an Action Plan for the EDUCATION OF REFUGEES (Project Press)

The Hellenic Open University is pleased to announce the launching of an integrated Action Plan aimed at detecting and addressing the educational needs of children alike with adults, who are migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, in Greece.

After a period of intensive preparation, a detailed plan of actions has been established which extends to three strands of action: Research, Linguistic Integration, Empowerment and Awareness. It includes diverse interventions aiming at the medium and long-term Educational Integration and Inclusion of Migrants.

In this effort, the HOU would like to invite whoever may be interested to support this initiative, by submitting ideas, opinions, remarks, texts etc. to the Digital Application, designed for this purpose, called «THINK TANK». The app will be open to everyone by this fall and will remain accessible throughout the phase of research and data collection. Where applicable, we will seek the cooperation of our 2016-17 Postgraduate Students to develop relevant dissertations. (The relevant Invitation will come out in September after the cooperation with the HOU Deans and Faculties).

A more detailed presentation of the project can be found at the:  http://www.press-eap.net/ website.

We look forward to your supporting the HOU Academic Community, so as to effectively address this critical educational, research and social issue.
