Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The team was composed by three representatives of the host German organization OneEurope and two international trainers.

Training methods used & main activities

During the Traning Course "Captivating Europe" only Non Formal Educational activities took place, such as debates, group discussions/worshops, outdoor activities and informal tasks to be fullfilled based on country realities, as best examples.

Outcomes of the activity

The training was very active and challenging, as there were a big diversity between new comers and senior youth workers, but that combination made the project successful and impactive, as many could learn and exchange among different circles and groups!

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was one of the two trainers and most of my tasks were related to conduct activities and workshops on Human Rights, active citizenship and youth participation.

I worked on this training for 9 days as a full time trainer.
