More than 20 people from 10 countries of Europe were seeing each other every day for 8 days. After almost a year and a half in isolation caused by a terrible epidemical situation, we finally had the opportunity to meet and dive into distance learning in youth work.
Aware of the diversity between us, we didn’t face the problem of communicating and collaborating from the very first days of the project. Speaking about the process of learning, we improved our digital competences and skills and enhanced the international dimension of youth activities. Participating in team activities taught us how to use digital tools properly and encouraged the quality of our work in the multimedia field.
Our daily routine started with breakfast on a terrace in the middle of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. After interesting and interactive lessons made by our facilitators, we shared the rest of our free time either during coffee breaks, exploring the city centre or having a party at the end of the day.
This project was useful not only in our professional spheres, but also in making a community full of incredible people and creating unforgettable memories which we will share for the rest of our lives!
