Students will be spending time making several excursions to important cultural and historical sites within and outside of Athens before traveling to the island of Lesvos, where many refugees from the Middle East and elsewhere have gathered in the attempt to enter Europe. The group will learn about the refugee crisis and the responses to this example of human need.
This cross cultural experience will be hosted by two local partners, the American College of Greece (ACG) and the Aegean Migrant Solidarity Project of Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT).
This experience replaces the previously scheduled cross cultural experience to China.
