The training course called I can Multiply! was an amazing experience for me. It was my first project I have participated and I was pleasantly surprised by such a good time spent there. It took place in Norway, Drammen which is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in Norway.
Thanks to experienced trainers, we had such a good time as they prepared for us plenty of activities such as workshops, energizers, street action. I have learned how to provide information in an interesting way as well as a respect to other cultures is very important issue nowadays.
What is more, we had a possibility to discover beautiful Norway as we organized a trip to the capital – Oslo and a hiking trip in the forest.
To sum it up, it was unforgettable ten days!
Everyone imagine the best for him differently…it can be country, in can be some typical place, it can be home…but when I came to Norway I realized, this is the one! Everything started when I got opportunity to go there, to Drammen. We took a part of training course called: I can multiply! We had a group of four girls, which was so cool, because we were friendly and nice to each other, what more, if we had a free time we preferred not just sitting or sleeping, but discovering place around! It was really great and we made trips every day in our free time.
But come back to our project and other participants. There were many countries, but all together we were around thirty people with our trainers, one of them from Estonia and second from Great Britain, they were very creative and well-prepared. Every day we had four sessions, where we learnt, how we can multiply, how we can spread information, how we can be useful for other people and share all information. The main target of this training was the biggest event in the end, when half of us went to school and share information about Youth in action project or the second half, who went to the city and informed people in the street. We used funny campaign with and we gave people leaflets.
Moreover to say, except this work we did every day, we walked and saw a lot around the city, nice nature and countryside. And what more? Oslo. Yes! We had organized an Oslo trip, which was unforgettable.
I am really happy that I could come to this project and I recommend all young people to take part in Youth in Action thanks to EYCB.
