The Global Humanitarian Lab is supporting Terre des Homme’s education work in Ioannina, Greece, with the installation of a creativity and empowerment space targeting young adolescents displaced by conflict. The project also aims to increase the integration of refugees with the local communities as well as promoting female inclusion.
We need your help to brainstorm ways we integrate our work with the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly goal five: gender equality. What activities could we suggest to ensure that the space supports the Global Goals?
Chose your time! There will be one-hour session throughout the day, sessions start on the hour, throughout the day.
Participants arriving at the hub will watch a short video introducing the Ioannina project by the local Fab Lab Manager, Danai Toursoglou, after which they can post ideas on how to achieve a gender balanced environment in the micro Fab Lab or ideas on how to concretely address other SDGs. Sessions are scheduled every hour from 10h00 to 17h00 on the hour, with intro of the context, brainstorming, and Q&A sessions.
