Project report:

In the beginning of August, four participants from the Czech Republic had an opportunity to take part in a training course World of Diversity in Bansko, Bulgaria. The programme was created to get to know better our minds, emotions and accept people who are different to us. Appart from that, we did many energizers and icebreakers and had time for hiking in the Pirin mountains, visiting Jazz fest or practising morning yoga.

This project was really special thanks to participants who came from countries outside of the EU (Pakistan, Mongolia, Azerbaijan, Ethiopia) who tought us many interesting cultural differencies. 

All in all, it was such a great experience. We collected interesting methods of non-formal education, for example a shadow theatre or coat of arms. I am sure, that we can use these methods in the future. 

Thanks to EYCB and Bulgarian organizers Ralitsa and Stan, we have amazing memories. We are grateful for them and hope that everybody can have this experience, too.
