The training course was based on several methods of non-formal education. The following methods were used throughout the training course: energizers (simple and funny games which will be used to open some sessions when the energy of the participants seem to be low), name games (in order to facilitate the learning of the other participants names), ice-breakers (games and other activities used to facilitate the non-formal introduction of the participants), brainstorming, debates, teamwork in intercultural subgroups.

The participants implemented a social media cross-channel campaign (Facebook-Twitter-Instagram-Youtube) on 10 December, International Day of Human Rights.
