Description

We are looking for innovative #Brighton businesses to help us grow this ground and border breaking project (that started right here in Brighton) and take it all the way around the world in 2018. If that sounds like something you'd like to become a part of then please come along to find out more.

Crisis Classroom has come a long way since we first went to Calais in 2015. So many amazing individuals have donated their time, skills, advice and hard earned cash to make the dream of taking education to people who can't get to school into a reality. We invested all the donations wisely, tested and refined our model over 2 years and now we are primed to go back on the road to reach more people in more countries and deliver more education.

Crisis Classroom: From Brighton to the Balkans

We will be travelling back along the refugee route from Brighton to the Balkans, visiting old friends, making new ones and offering educational support along the way. We will be working in partnership with the people we meet at every step; making the most of the skills and abilities that they possess to create a responsive, mobile education model that can be built upon as people settle in to a new life in Europe. It's a zero waste approach to creating opportunities for learning. It looks like a patchwork rather than a ladder and it works by using the best bits of learning that we already possess and sharing them, for free, with people who want to learn what we already know. It's simple, it's effective and all it needs to reach right around the world is enough people willing and able to #makeroom in their lives to volunteer just one thing.

We have a team about to set off with a van, pop-up classroom, educational resources and volunteer educators.We're looking for sponsorship, advice, connections, collaboration, materials and participation to make it a roaring success. There's even the opportunity to be part of our documentary, get directly involved in shaping the project, and to join us on location throughout Europe!

Why not come along and see if it's for you. It’s free to attend, there'll be drinks & nibbles, and an opportunity to try out some of our activities. At the very least you'll meet some really interesting people who share your spirit – what have you got to lose?
