On Tuesday, November 3rd 2015, the Hellenic Copyright Organization (HCO), the Regional Directorate of Primary and Secondary Education of Western Greece and the Department of Culture of the Directorate for Primary Education of Achaia organized a seminar in the city of Patra (Agora Argiri) for the promotion of the educational programme «Copyright and Related Rights».
The aim of the seminar was to inform teachers of Achaia about the educational programme «Copyright and Related Rights» as well as the importance of the authors' work (writers, visual artists, photographers, music composers, software developers etc) and related rights rightholders (singers, musicians, actors, publishers, film and records producers etc.). The seminar was attended by approximately 50 teachers. In addition to the HCO speakers, the famous singer Anastasia Moutsatsou also addressed the audience.
After the presentations there was a round table, where all participants were given the opportunity to discuss with the representatives of the HCO about copyright and related rights with regard to education.
All attendees were handed a folder containing informative material, including a handbook about copyright for primary school pupils, another one for teachers, a handbook with the basics of copyright, a comic book, stickers with the logo of the programme and more.
