Aims & objectives

The goal of the training was to make participants familiar with the ways and goals of using pedagogical tools Real Ideal and Speaker's Corner. Furthermore, the goal was to promote non-formal education as a method which can be used in managing finances, organizing time, planning life goals and inclusion, empathy, the need to cooperate, acknowledging human rights, promoting differences and universal values of freedom as-well as solving conflicts via communication in more efficiently and with more quality approach.
Training activities were shaped in a way that participants cen very easily use them in everyday work with children and youngsters or during the Erasmus+ projects. Due to the fact that the partners were involved already in project preparation, the program and method used were communicated in accordance with their needs.
