The Czech team arrived in Sofie day before the course. We created group with other course participants on Facebook. We arranged and planed a joint dinner in Sofia. So I met some participants before the course. We met with other course participants the next day. Then we all went by bus to Pamporovo. Pamporovo is a popular SKI resort among mountains. There is beautiful nature.
The main goal of training course “Critical Thinking Skills” was build critical thought, development of cognitive skills and solving of problems. During this training course we had very busy schedule.Over the next feww days we worked a lot in groups. I think thaught me a lot of new things, because our groups were often very diverse and varied. We shared our experiences and opinions about the topic of course and about our personal and professional lives.
Intercultural nights were an opportunity to get to know different cultures and we could taste a lot of traditional food and drinks imported by participants from their own countries. The nights continued with socializing, dances or games.
We visited town Smolyan. We met organization YIYD Youth Center. Youth and volunteers from the whole area , they have met there, arganize beneficial events and help each other. We also had a trip to the Snezanka tower.
