“Green in the city” event in Patras, Greece
The project partner of Co-Education in Green, p-consulting.gr, organised and implemented the event “Green in the city”, which took place in Patras on 13.10.2022 and was attended by various stakeholders.
During the pandemic COVID -19, events requiring physical presence could not be held everywhere in Greece for the last 2 years. For this reason, p-consulting.gr decided to organise a large event and invited representatives from: local authorities, regional authorities, technical chambers, associations of people with disabilities, non-governmental organisations, public and private educational institutions, representatives of local communities, active citizens, interest groups from all over Greece, etc.
We all came together and discussed issues, shared views and opinions on the transformation of green, shared urban spaces through training and active community engagement, focusing on how these areas will be accessible to all to promote people's well-being and prosperity. The main and undeniable conclusion was that our shared spaces in our cities can become greener and accessible to all if we all become aware and actively participate.
During the event, all the results of the Co-Education in Green project delivered by the partners were presented on the website, such as:
The Interactive Database containing best practises and information on how to transform shared spaces into green, environmentally friendly areas.
The Online Training Kit developed by the partners in English and in all partner languages, which addresses the training needs of adult educators and aims to improve their professional skills in managing environmental education projects by transforming shared spaces into green areas accessible to communities.
The Manual on how to create multisensory gardens for people with disabilities, in English and in the languages of all partners.
The number of participants exceeded all expectations and there was great interest in the project results and when these results will be available to all interested persons. All participants received a certificate of attendance and returned extremely positive and valuable feedback.
