TOTEM responds to the need of developing specific EUROMED-related competences in the field of training and tries to address to a very specific target group of candidates, being its existence part of an overall bigger strategy which encompass also supporting Youth In Action and EuroMed Youth IV programmes.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

18 Mediterranean and 20 European participants meet at Euromed Youth Center of Adrasan, Turkey from 18th to the 29th October 2011 to contribute to the development of a network of trainers on a Euro-Mediterranean level and to become active actors in the field of Euromed Youth Cooperation.
