Training methods used & main activities

On the training course we used non formal educational methods. One of them was the experimental learning. Further on we have a method called: creative recycling, where we use the process of creation in order to develop soft skills participants.
One of them was the 'Be a Designer' process when participants became product developers and they had the chance to work in smaller groups on a common idea. They created a 'shity prototype' from up cycled materials and created plans, marketing plan, product photo, slogen, etc.

Outcomes of the activity

The main outcome of the training course that participants got many useful tools what they can use when they want to set up in the future a social enterprise or they want to start up on their idea.
Further on we had an open event in Bratislava, at LEAF Academy (boarding school) where participants had the opportunity to pitch their idea and share their values and knowledge with others.
There will be a video about the project, the consul of Greek and Hellenic Republic came to the event and participants are creating new ventures and start to realize their own ideas.
