Visit to the City Hall and meeting with the mayor of Kalamata. The meeting was published on the official website of the municipality of Kalamata.
The main activity of the mobility to Kalamata within the frame of the Erasmus+/KA2- INCLUDE project, was the social event which took place at the Municipal Cultural Center, on Thursday, April 6, 2017. The aim of the event was to support associations and NGOs active in the field of social inclusion, such as: SOS Children Villages, Social Solidarity Clinic, the center that helps people with physical disabilities- KEFIAP, the association of people with cancer experience – KSANARXIZW. The event, which was a music concert, became widely known to the local community of Kalamata through the campaign that was held by the 4th Senior High School.
For that purpose, a poster was created which was forwarded via email to all schools of Messinia region and to all educational and other local authorities. The poster was also printed in many copies, which were posted at many crowded places of the city.

Konstantina Dimakakou (student of the 4th Senior High School, Kalamata-Greece) about her logo:
“The drawing shows two kids, that are completely different, holding the Earth in their hands. The girl is white and the boy is black. I’ve chosen to draw T-shirts on them that have the opposite colours. With this antithesis, I want to highlight that the world belongs to everyone, no matter how he looks like, where he is from, what he wears. Everybody has the right to consider Earth as his home. Equality is the basic foundation of democracy. Every single person in the world has to have the privilege to live in a democratic constitution, where he is able to have the same rights with all of his fellow citizens.
