UPDATE: FoC was approached by the Canadian embassy to organise a CEGEP/FoC Encounter, in collaboration with the Canadian embassy and Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Quebec. This Canadian CEGEP study tour group (22 pre-university students accompanied by three professors) met up with six FoC Canadian volunteers to gain insights about various aspects of living in Greece – including the current economic situation, the refugee crisis, the education system, the LGBT community, religion and tourism. Fran Kaltsiki, FoC moderator, wryly noted that the only question really stumping the panellists was: What is the solution for Greece’s problems?
