Based in Thessaloniki, we took actively part  in various initiatives at local level.In cooperation with University of Macedonia , we promoted Erasmus+ and non-formal education.Moreover,we provided innovative digital literacy workshops in the local Roma Community working closely with Faros tou kosmou institution. Furthermore, we organized an exhibition after providing photo shooting lessons to refugees.Also we have connections with an ecological network in Thessaloniki, and are regularly doing activities together.

Finally , in 2020 we are actively involved in empowering women through our participation in an KA2 Activity and we are planning to organize 2 international activities related to the inclusion of people who are stuttering.
