We envision a wide-scale change in education, where trust in the young person runs through his/her everyday life, where decisions are made through democratic processes and where mental health and community-based relationships are the priority, rather than grades and titles.
Here you can see our plan of action as formed thus far. It ranges from movie projections and discussions to founding democratic schools. We are interested to talk with parents and collaborate with public and private schools. We are open to proposals and ask for your active involvement. By pressing the links in the sections below, you can find more information about the projects that are already completed or in the process of being realised.
Due to the lack of a relevant association in our country, we propose the creation of a network for existing ventures in Greece, in order to bring to light the alternative educational structures that are collectively, regardless of approach, an alternative, so as to change the legal status concerning the right of freedom in education choice. In addition to networking existing ventures, we invite students, parents and teachers who are in favor of free choice to join the association. We are arguing for a pedagogical environment where EVERY child can discover and recognize her essence, her needs, her skills and her difficulties, and in general to acquire the tools to use in full potential according to their individual needs; in the direction of feeling right among her fellows. That is, to develop self-regulation, critical thinking, empathy, solidarity, respect for life / the environment and the ability to reinvigorate her life as many times as necessary. An inclusive environment for regardless of sex orientation and for ALL children who would like it: Whether children are “different in nature”, “charismatic” or “with special educational needs”, “neurotic” or “disabled.” An open structure which teaches cohabitation with and respect for diversity and life itself in every form.

We want to join forces and be able to work in the area of special interest. With this in mind, we created this group map where all the individual work groups are listed. We're still in the beginning, so don't be surprised if you can't find thousands of jobs waiting for you. It would make us very happy if you actively helped a team and / or if you wanted to create one that you think is missing!
