Álvaro Díaz Cuevas


Vallecas... this is my origins in the southeast of Madrid.
In this district I started as youth worker, and i start learning about the non-formal education.
Then in the european level with trainings and meetings, then the EVS in Vienna, Europa Joven San Blas, ToT 2014, Spanish Youth Council, Mid Term EVS Evaluation, ... I enjoy to keep learning while facilitating learning spaces for others... and for me ;) humorme.eu/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/the-humor-me-e-book.pdf humor is always welcome!
