The International Research Centre CARDET in collaboration with "Hope For Children" CRC Policy Center organized a MEDIS Info day to present and promote the scope and activities of the MEDIS programme to the students of the gymnasium of Palouriotissa in Nicosia, Cyprus.
The presentation of the MEDIS programme as well as the small workshops took place on the 12th of November, 2018 in Nicosia, Cyprus. An overwhelming majority of around 125 students attended the MEDIS presentation as well as several educators and the principal of the gymnasium of Palouriotissa. During the presentation the students had the opportunity to listen and learn about the major concepts tackled in the MEDIS programme such as racism, inclusive education and human rights. Furthermore, through the two workshops of MEDIS which followed later on, the students were provided with insights as to what is the scope of MEDIS and what it offers.
