Project report:

Speak up- That was the name of our project and it couldn´t be more descriptive. I think I haven´t speak about so many topics with so many interesting people in that short period of time. 

Those ten intense days were about learning and understanding others people issues. We talked about daily problems that everybody struggles with and while everybody was talking what they are dealing with I realised we have similar problems and even if you feel lonely sometimes and that the world is against you, you´re not alone. So many people deal with similar problems and uncomfortable feelings and its really important to talk about it. Our amazing organizers created safe place where everybody could freely speak and felt heard. 

 First few days were about getting to know each other and playing all different meeting games which helped us to connect more between each other and learn new things about other participants. Then we were divided to different groups .Every group created their unique Stop motion animation which was presented in local movie theater. We had a free hand in choosing the topic. We have learned how to work in groups and compromise about our ideas and listen what each memeber of group has to say.

Then we brainstormed about problems that our countries dealing with and we have learned so much about each country and their culture, problems and history. We also got a change to explore nearby nature and went on a hiking trip while also playing another game to speak about our feelings and experiences.

I have met so many amazing and inspiring people and I trully feel inspired by that. If you are thinking about going just go, you never know, who you gonna meet and even that one person can change your life.
