Our project „Let´s stop wasting“ took place in a traditional town Aksaray with its 180 000 inhabitants. We spent 7 woderful days which will be hard to ever forget about!
Our Czech group already met in Vienna airport and with the last member in Ankara – 6 students who didn’t know each other before but become friends in the first moment. Before we get to project we spend one night and day in Ankara where we were sightseeing, talking, getting to know each other and walking around the city. When we arrived in the evening in Aksaray,where we met the rest of participants. Azerbaijan, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, Macedonia, Turkey. It was a perfect mixture of intelligent, creative and inspirative people.
The next day we started our activities – getting to know each other, getting some knowledge about wasting. Everything was working perfectly, people were amazing and our organizer Kerem was the best one. Every activity had its sense and its aim.
Also we one day we went on a trip to Cappadocia. We had own guide and bus drivers, so we were able to see and get to know so many interesting things. It was really great and tiresome day.
I am so glad I had the opportunity to be a part of such a great group of people in perfect place. I am glad that I met so many new friends.
Thank you so much for everything!
