Programme & action: Youth in Action programme, action 4.3. training course
Choose Your Freedom has been a very interresting project related to human traffickig (HT). I’ve deepened not only my knowledge about HT, what it is, what are the forms, who are the victims, how they are affected… But also explored some interesting pedagogical approaches the organisers used, which I may use in the future in my own pedagogical activities, also in peer education.
In addition, I am as well planning to organise a small event with projection of the movie “Lilya 4-Ever” witch my friends, where I will say a few words about HT issues…
Moreover, as you are already probably aware of, YIA training courses (TC) are also very much about meeting new people from different countries and different cultures and travelling and getting to know new countries/landscapes/food – at least briefly. In such a context, this TC has been also very beneficial for me, and the other participants, too, as far as I know.
I am very pleased I could participate on such a project.
