YEU Academy in Poznan
The part of the YEU Academy in Poznań (Poland) was supported by Centrum Inicjatyw Młodzieżowych Horyzonty and Centrum aktywności Twórczej. The EVS volunteers from CIM Horyzonty – Vera Matskevych from Ukraine and Miguel Loreno Melo from Portugal – participated in the training as well as supported the team of organizers, for exmaple taking care of the coffee breaks. They wanted to share their opinion about the project.
More and more I start to like informal way of education for discovering and receiving new knowledge.
YEU Academy was a training where I developed some organization skills (I helped Miguel with coffee breaks). And also I enjoyed attending the workshops and work with new people. I opened for myself social media for another point of view – as a tool for spreading useful information (more oriented on really important society messages; before I used it only as a tool for communication with friends).
Finally I had some real contact with that strange entity (YEU) that I was always hearing about and seeing the logos around in Horyzonty office.
YEU Academy was a project that started in Portugal, then Cyprus, then Turkey, passed here, Poznań, Poland, and will move to Estonia, spreading the knowledge about intercultural dialogue in the new (and old) media for young activists. 18 participants, two trainers, two journalists and a general-secretary.
It was a good idea exchange and definitely good to meet all this interesting persons. The tasks and the details about them where very interesting yet if we were completely tired from “extra” activities.
It was a good experience and I hope it was as good like this in Portugal, Turkey, Cyprus and Estonia.
By the way, the coffee brake was very well organized.
