Training methods used & main activities

All working methods and activities aimed at fostering intercultural learning and exchange between participants from different backgrounds. The training methodology was based on non-formal educational methods. First we tried to create a safe environment to share, allowing everyone to participate on an equal basis. After that we made a team building games and icebreakers in order to make the group more linked. Next days we used a lot of non-formal methods such as, short presentations, practical exercises, group activities, debates, skills-development workshops on cultural awareness, self-assessment, improvement of key competences, sharing ideas and project planning, cultural presentations and outdoor activities which encouraged participants to discuss and share views and opinions about the project’s topic.
