I am a teacher of classics, rhetoric and creative thinking in Arsakeia Schools since 2001, holder of DEA (Paris IV, Sorbonne) and a Phd candidate. I teach experiential learning at the MA of “Rhetoric, Humanities and Education”-University of Athens since 2015. I designed “Teisias”, a program which is implemented in greek schools as part of “Life Skills Workshops” of the Ministry of Education. This program combines classical rhetoric, techniques for generating ideas, principles of effective communication, rhetorical games, team work and the concept of learning communities.
As president of the Hellenic Association for the Promotion of Rhetoric in Education (www.rhetoricedu.com) since 2009 and co-ordinator of the “Sympraxis Team for Democracy on Education”-EUDEC-Greece, I have organized on a voluntary basis more than 200 workshops. In 2021 ActionAid Hellas assigned to me the organization of the panhellenic debate tournament as part of the European finals “Climate of Change Debates” in Brussels. I also organized the Students’ European Rhetoric Symposium (2022) of Teachers4Europe Network and “You Lead” (2023) panhellenic debate tournament of ActionAid Hellas.
I am founder of “Open Your Mind Summer Camps” and “International Democracy Camps” for teenagers and university students since 2017.
I strongly believe in the power of connecting people and educating kids and teens to become effective citizens and I get truly empowered through participating in various academic and volunteers’ teams
In this article we answer some questions regarding the decision to transform Learn to Change from an association to a collective.
In this article, we talk about what we mean by Collective – the new form chosen by L2C – and how you can join it.
Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
If you feel you are committed to the vision and mission of the association, then your place is here.
We are sure that becoming a member will benefit you in many ways. Read the product description for more details or click sign up now.
