This Action showed the outcome of the competences and techniques which were developed during the Training, as well as facilitating a space for visibility of the project and social, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue between the participants, the local population and the other social organisations involved from the community of Benaocaz and of Cadiz. This was the immediate local impact, as well as empowering a group of young people with diverse abilities, giving visibility to their project and to the currently difficult territorial and economic context.
