InterActive Evaluation in Rome
The evaluation meeting of the project InterActiveTrain – Get in and Gain took place in October 2nd-3rd in Rome, Italy. All the leaders from each participating country gathered together in order to evaluate the project and develop future project ideas.
Regarding the personal development of the leaders and participants then the project was really empowering. For most of the participants it was the first time to attend an activity like this and many of them got loads of motivation and enthusiasm to continue in the field of youth work.
During the meeting we also discussed what should be done differently next times. It was agreed that the selection of participants for this kind of projects should be done more carefully. Meaning that the conditions of this project were really challenging and not all the participants were ready for this king of adventure.
All present agreed that the impact on local level was great. Not all the cities have international activities running frequently and therefore seeing an international group of youngsters running around and interacting with locals was empowering for local youth and authorities as well.
Everyone is looking forward to future joint actions!
