Merhaba! Hello! We just arrived from the only city that lies on two continents – Istanbul. Our training course started on 25th September and finished on 30th September. It took place in beautiful Turkish forests in the suburbs of the city. The number of participating countries contributed to the diversity of the people and cultures as there were 10 participating countries – Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Macedonia, Greece, Czech Republic, France, Belgium.
Thanks to the organizers we all received great theoretical knowledge about entrepreneurship, creating a business plan, promoting your business etc. Later on we were all encouraged to create our own imaginary enterprise using the theory we just got. Extremely interesting element of the program was meeting with a famous Turkish youtuber, who talked about online business and gave us interesting tips and know-how from this field.
As far as cultural exchange is concerned, the organizers made the intercultural night really special for all of us to present our countries and traditional elements belonging to them.
All in all, this project exemplifies the importance of people from different countries and cultures to meet and highlights the value of learning by doing.
