The activity will take place in the village of Kannavia and Ayia Eirini. Once you complete the 5 tasks from this activity you will receive the ‘’Ithaca’’ Badge.
You hold in your hands the map of the two villages, imagine that Odysseus had to go through a lot of challenges in his life, therefore as Tilemahos who you are looking for him, you will have to explore different places until you find him. You need to be mindful and take with you your dreamcatcher on this journey (remember that it symbolizes your goals and your aim to bring Odysseas back to Ithaca)
Challenge 1: Stop 1 in the map - The ViewPoint- Before starting each journey you need to observe the weather and the circumstances around you. Find the highest viewpoint in the village. Can you see Odysseus and his boats from there?
At this stop, the ‘battleship’ game will be in a life (big) size shape. People will have to solve the battleship and on the last ship, there will be a ‘morse code’ where to go next.
Challenge 2: Stop 2 - The Hiking Path (Selladi Karamanli) as there are a lot of paths that someone can take, Odysseus was always taking the harvest and the most challenging one, find the hiking path that goes through the village and with your team create a song with the words -adventure-dreams-heroes-difficulties-reward- achievements- + the word that is located at the beginning of the path. Upload it on the platform and find the Clue for the next stop
Challenge 3: Stop 3 - Odyseas was an ambitious person with a lot of dreams, but sometimes he was making Gods angry and they were cursing him to stay on his journey for longer and not being able to go back to Ithaca. Participants on their way will find a jigsaw puzzle with the poem of Ithaca. They have to do the puzzle and some words that will be bold black will give a clue on where to go next.
Challenge 4: Stop 4- Participants on their way will find a camera. They have to take a selfie with their dreamcatchers. Find a way to make the gods help you so your journey is going to be good. On your way to the next clue, you will find a place to post the picture from the Polaroid camera. There they will find a semaphore or substitution cyphers, showing them the way to enter the coffee shop.
Challenge 5: Stop 5 - The coffee shop.
According to the epic of Odysseus, Odysseus and his allies needed to rest, and they landed on an island with oxen animals. They were warned not to consume the animals as they belonged to the God Helios. Tilemahos (Participants) will finally find Odysseys where he was resting on the island of God Helios. Where could that place be in the village? CLue: people go there to socialise. While going towards the entrance of the coffee shop, there will be a tree that everyone needs to hang their dreamcatchers. This illustrates the end of the mission and the finding of Odysseus. After all this journey you can enter the coffee shop and find an A3 Picture of Odysseus on the wall. Now it is your time for some rest. But be careful, you are not allowed to consume anything at the coffee shop apart from something that is local. You have been a true adventurer, everyone deserves some rest. In order to collect your badge by completing this last challenge eat the most traditional product in the coffee shop and upload a picture of it on the cities of learning platform
