Project report:

Project “Promoting Youth Unemployment – policy and action” was held in Bulgarian National Health Centre in Lozen close to Sofia, bulgarian capital city. Participants came from 7 European countries to work in this project. Scheduled activities started daily at 10 a.m. with energizers after breakfast. Then working groups were formed to discuss several topics related to Youth Unemployment. After one hour every topics were presented in seminar room. At 1 P.M. lunch time started for 2 hours followed by another session with other topic also discussed in groups and presented.

Each sessions, morning and afternoon, lasted 3 hours and were combined with 15 minutes coffee breaks. Dinner started at 7 p.m. and after 8 p.m. there was an evening program as intercultural nights, Bulgarian night or farewell party. It was also possible to play a football or other activities and we played football game at least two times. Last day of our project before leaving Bulgaria we were able to make a trip to Sofia together.

Evaluation of participants were mostly positive, participants were almost all the time behaving in nice and friendly way to each other, and good new ideas or plans were created. Organizators tried to do their best with activities, accommodation and food and I would tell that they succeeded.
