Lifestyles of the Mediterranean

SA Greece AcropSA16LSwithStudentsSA Greece Table


This program will present the traditional Mediterranean lifestyle pattern to students of the modern era, through conducting research, observing traditional practices, and undertaking experiential activities.  Students will have the opportunity to not only study, but to also experience the concept of the Mediterranean lifestyle in Greece, where this traditional lifestyle pattern has been implemented for thousands of years and researched in terms of its effects on health, well-being, and disease.

During the first week, the program’s educational activities will take place in Athens, the capital of Greece, one of the world's oldest cities. Classical Athens was a center for the arts, learning and philosophy, and it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy. Today, Athens is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece. While in Athens, students will familiarize with the history, evolution and culinary aspects of the Mediterranean lifestyle, through visits to archaeological sites and educational workshops in traditional food markets and establishments.

The program will continue with a 5-day trip to Peloponnese, a peninsula in the southern part of Greece. While in Peloponnese, students will study the production, nutritional properties and health benefits of traditional Mediterranean foods and spirits, familiarize with the concept of Greek breakfast, taste traditional Mediterranean recipes, and participate in several interactive educational group activities.

During the 2-week program, some days will be devoted to theoretical lectures, discussion sessions or workshops on the scientific and culture themes of the day, followed by studying in local institutions. Other days will be devoted entirely to field trips, excursions and interactive educational activities, including visits to monumental sites and cultural places of natural beauty, demonstrations of Mediterranean lifestyle practices, as well as collective activities in nature.
