The European Living Library in Greece was organized in Thessaloniki, on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021. The event was a unique opportunity for citizens and visitors of this ancient city to meet and talk with people from project’ partner countries and hear their stories. Every living book which was present is a person with its unique identity and a life story ready to be shared with everyone who shows willingness to listen. The citizens of Thessaloniki of all ages, genders and backgrounds were eager to “rent” our books and have fruitful discussions with them.
The living library was organized within the project “European Living Library for Young Citizens”, supported by the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union. The aim of the project is to bring the European Living Library to different cities of Europe with the idea of boosting the dialogue between citizens from different countries and socio-economic backgrounds in order to break prejudice and stereotypes between them.
Stay tuned and follow our work as we intend to bring the Living Library to Sarajevo, Skopje, Valencia, Ljubljana and Belgrade. Don’t miss your opportunity to become a part of the effort of building understanding between European countries and people.
