The SLEAD project held an on-site meeting on 25-26 April in Athens, Greece, an event which brought together partners and experts to discuss the project’s progress and plan future activities. During the sessions, partners discussed the implementation of service-learning activities in their respective countries and plans for upcoming online teacher training and Summer School. The gathering was organised by Deutsch Schule Athens (DSA), a school that has been actively involved in the SLEAD project since its inception. DSA is implementing a new subject in its formal education offer: Global Learning, with the aim of highlighting its focus on Global Citizenship Education.

The reunion ended with a final event of the Understanding Service-Learning (USL) project, which brought together various organisations to discuss the impact of service-learning in communities across Europe.

SLEAD is a valuable initiative that promotes democratic values and active citizenship among young people. By participating in service-learning activities, students have the opportunity to develop important skills such as empathy, teamwork and critical thinking, while contributing to improving their communities. The on-site meeting in Athens was an important step in advancing the project’s goals, and we look forward to seeing the positive impacts of Service-Learning in Europe.
