Project report:

The project took place in Canakkale, Turkey in a small pension Yellow Rose in the heart of the town. Most of the program was organized by the Turkish participants, which were one of the five countries in this project. Other participants were from Bulgaria, Italy, Poland and from the Czech Republic and their task was to prepare energizers and cultural nights.

There was a schedule (by the meaning of the Turkish people, there was no such thing as a precise schedule or timetable) of morning activities and afternoon activities.

The main topic of the morning activities was about the European Union and about the meaning of it what it means to us, as to citizens of the EU. Then the morning activities were also about getting to know each other.

Afternoons there were workshops of Sheet Painting, Marbling (a typical Turkish method) and painting on glass.
On Thursday there was a trip to Troy and to Assos (if you wanted to go see the archeological ruins, you had to pay entrance) and to the coast of the sea.

This project put together a random group of people and introduced closer different types of culture and stereotypes of each country.
