In preparation for the Athens project training by PAEPSM Ezzev chairman Onno Hansen-Staszyński flew to Athens in January  to establish the prerequisites of the training with trainer Maria Ghiata Pozios. As a starting-point for the training, it was decided that a questionnaire for underprivileged parents and a Best Practices document would have to be drafted.
Next, a training period was established: March 29 – April 2, 2017. This period includes a Saturday – the day that parents from the Marasleion primary school meet at the school to bottom-up educate themselves.
Finally, the trainer, together with trainees Beata Staszyńska-Hansen, Francisca Frenks and Onno Hansen-Staszyński, drafted the training programme: “Bottom-up self-organization by (underprivileged) parents – Best Practices”.
