7 Νοεμβρίου, 2006
The presentation of the educational file "Ελευθέριος Βενιζέλος. Στα βήματά του..." (Eleftherios Venizelos. Following his steps...) was held on November 7th, 2006, in Athens (Foundation of the Hellenic World, Building 7, Presentations Hall, Pireos 254, Tavros). The event was organised by the Foundation and the Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs that collaborated for the file publication.
It is an important project for education; for the first time, in the sixth grade of 5000 primary schools of the country, students will be taught about the life and political course of Venizelos.
With this publication, the Foundation is addressing Primary Education and proposes an alternative approach of teaching modern history, by introducing the chapter “Venizelos” into schools in a scientific and documented manner.
The publication started within the programme "Melina – Education and Culture" but it was only feasible with the collaboration and funding of the Ministry of National Education and Religious Affairs.
The file includes four books: Βιβλίο Ιστορικών Πληροφοριών (Book of Historic Information), Διαδρομή στο χρόνο (Travel in Time), Βιβλίο Δραστηριοτήτων (Activity Book) for students and Βιβλίο Οδηγιών (Book of Guidelines) for teachers. The book design and editing of the publication was made by the editions Kalidoskopio.
The speakers of the presentation were: Giorgos Kandarakis, Dimitris Kartsakis and Kostas Manolakis.
Short speeches were given by the Minister of Education, Marietta Giannakou, the Secretary General of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, Andreas Karamanos and the CEO of the Foundation, Nikolaos Emm. Papadakis. The event coordinator was Eleni Gardika Katsiadaki, scientific advisor of the Foundation.
