Date: 19 – 26 March 2012
Venue: Jajce, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Participants: Ondřej Serbousek, Ramona Sanigová
The project Why not? What matters! Was situated in the beautiful town of Jajce in Bosnia. The country Bosnia is beautiful but at the moment underestimated. It suffers for a number of prejudices. The town is not big but it has a historical value. It is situated in a nice landscape with a river with cascade of waterfalls.
The project was focused on a topic of voluntarism, especially voluntarism within the Youth in Action orogramme and building new partnerships with organization from different countries which participated. The workshops were focused on developing abilities related to a work of a volunteer and they were mostly made by a non-formal education and non-formal methods. The special thing was to make a flash mob and its presentation in public in Jajce and even in Sarajevo. There was a 1 day trip to Sarajevo where we had a possibility to meet European politicians and discuss with them conditions for the Youth in Action programme and other interesting stuff.
We stayed in a Youth Hostel where we had all the comfort. We ate in a local restaurant. Each country had from one to three participants and everybody was friend with everybody really soon. Even if there were some hard tasks the result were always really good. We both gained not only a lot of great memories and friends but a lot of new knowledge and experiences too.
