Mikros Dounias is an educational project on the Greek island of Lesvos. Every day, local and refugee children of early childhood age play and learn together in the small forest of the open refugee camp Lesvos Solidarity. We, the parents, the educators and the children of Mikros Dounias, organize our learning processes collectively, beyond any form of discrimination. We respect the rhythm, the needs and desires of each person by encouraging freedom of choice and self-regulation. Outdoor learning brings us closer to the creatures and the elements of nature, reinforcing our relations to everything around us.
