International Student Conferences

Research - Creation - Learning

What are Student Conferences?

The Student Conferences are a mixture of student educational activities that raise the research effort and creativity of the students.

An innovative initiative

Student Conferences include a variety of Competitions, Workshops and Conferences. Every year a significant number of such actions are organized in Greece and abroad.

Educational activities

The educational process has made leaps and bounds of extroversion. Educational activities are developed that enrich the daily lives of students and teachers.

The Student Conferences contribute to the students' intellectual development

Student Conferences change the data on school trips. With their participation, students understand the meaning of research, creation, and collaboration.

Through joint European activities, children are given the opportunity to travel to European countries to present great work, learn about the culture of those countries and develop communication with their European classmates.

The educational activities aim to highlight that the school is a hive of search-detection and highlighting the various skills of children.

Past Activities

2nd Panhellenic Student Competition

“100 years since the Smyrne Catastrophe”

The 2nd Panhellenic Student Competition was held in 2022, on the 100th anniversary of the Asia Minor Catastrophe.

The excellent work of the 150 students who participated, was proof that the children are “thirsty” for this kind of activities. The Competition allowed them to express their personality, develop and show their talent but also create beyond strict norms. Due to the exceptional participation, ELEMASYN decided not to give 3 awards, but 4!

1st Panhellenic Student Competition

“Creations of Culture”

The 1st Panhellenic Student Competition, in 2021, was about the Cultural Heritage of our homeland, Europe, and the value of its protection.

Due to the special conditions of the pandemic, the “Creations of Culture 2021” were a way out of the need for children to express themselves. Greece’s rich cultural heritage became the occasion for children to create and explore their skills. In addition to the Awards given to 3 winners, ELEMASYN gave Honorary Commendations to 10 Students.

1st International Student Conference

“Constantinople’s History, Culture, Hellenism and Multiculturalism”

On March 15, 2020, the beginning of the pandemic found us and the participants at the door of the 1st International Student Conference.

The pandemic did not allow us to travel, but that did not discourage us or the participants! 47 schools and 635 students from Greece, Cyprus and Istanbul, sent their works, received the commemorative material and all together, we worked hard to prepare the Proceedings of the 1st Conference.

The following International Student Conference will be held in 2023.

Under the Auspices of
Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople

In collaboration with
Consulate General of Constantinople
