Volunteering

We are not just a Greek language school and learning centre. We care about the environment. We also worry about the rise of intolerance and fanaticism. For this reason we have established “Dialogos”, a non-profit organization that promotes small-scale projects and actions based on volunteering. Dialogos is a local organization. Its headquarters are on the island of Ikaria and activities are coordinated through the Ikarian Centre’s campus in Arethousa. Dialogos’ initiatives aim to motivate people, especially the local people of Ikaria, to protect their environment. “Dialogos” also aims to motivate Greek and Turks living in both sides of the border to go beyond prejudices, intolerance  and fanaticism and start a common dialogue. Therefore, with Dialogos we are running projects based on volunteer work, like the “project Ikaria pathways“, an effort to clean and mark footpaths in Arethousa, Ikaria; and common educational and cultural actions with Turkish citizens, such as the parallel Greek – Turkish language course
