Be creative in presenting yourself and the group then post it to the FB group of the project.


Each group will have to prepare one morning energizer and one workshop. All members of the team need to be involved. The topic of the workshop can be suggested by the group but it has to be connected with the project theme (sustainbility, entrepreneurship, soft-skills, social responsibility, creativity).

Workshop needs to be done using non-formal teaching techniques, which means active participation and learning by doing from all participants (participants need to be involved during the activity).
Participants need to bring some traditional food and drinks from their countries which will be shared during the international evenings.

short 1min video). Participants will not get their reimbursement until they send evidence that activity took place.
