On 28 January 2015, C4i in Patras, Greece, held an anti-rumour workshop on the premises of the municipal prison. The workshop was attended by the prison director, staff and prisoners of different nationalities. Konstantinos Apostolopoulos, Patras C4i coordinator, argues: “Prison is a small society that involves coexistence of people from very many different ethnic backgrounds. The exchange that took place at the workshop revealed fruitful concerns and questions and demonstrated that there is a real need for applying the anti-rumor model.”
It was agreed that a new workshop will take place in the near future and that the anti-rumor model will be incorporated in the curricular of the prison school operating on the prison premises, with a view to targeting its human potential, prisoners and staff.
