Sustainable Lifestyle and Refugee Crisis in Greece
Use your free time this winter to learn how you can make a positive impact on a major global issue.
Students in the course Sustainable Lifestyle and Refugee Crisis in Greece will travel to Greece for two weeks to learn about issues surrounding the refugee crisis, including human rights, practicing democracy, and achieving sustainable development.
According to the team at the Department of Kinesiology and Health, “the service-learning framework of the course creates an opportunity for students to engage with migrants, refugees, volunteers and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in Greece, gain knowledge and awareness about refugee issues, and provide meaningful service.”
Instructors for the course, Dr. Sidossis and Dr. Psarra—both native Greeks—are experts in this area of specialization and have firsthand knowledge of the refugee crisis in Greece.
The course is open to all students and majors. Students who are interested in this unique opportunity must apply by November 10, 2017. Visit kinesabroad.rutgers.edu to apply.
