Volunteering: new information, new incentives and approaches
At the event in Sarajevo the participants became more acquainted with their project partners, the annual focus theme and the host city.
A City Rally provided the opportunity to learn more about the history and the residents of the Bosnian capital.
Workshops on volunteering and project management, held by experts from all over Europe, helped the participants to implement their bi- or trilateral school projects.
A “Bazar of Learning” enabled space for self-directed learning at more than 20 interactive stations. The participants got a range of inputs all around volunteering: They could talk to living books, learn more about skills and competences they need as volunteers and much more.
The party on the last evening was the chance for all to celebrate their new friendships and the official start of the implementation of their school projects.
