Training methods used & main activities

The methodology of this training course based on non-formal learning, game-based learning and self-directed learning. The programme aims was to give room for playfulness and experimentation. For example, we used music, games and digital platforms as tools to investigate the potential of participation.
The programme built upon the experiences and knowledge present within the group, debates, and self-reflection on pax own learning processes.
