"EMpathY Emotional Management - The Path for Youth" (20. - 28. 11. 2018, Rumunsko)

In November 2018, the second part of the "Empathy" project took place in Romania, this time it was a youth exchange. The young people learned to better work with their emotions and their group leaders learned to teach them these abilities. The leader of the Czech group was Nikol, who the youngsters grew to love more or less as much as me and Jája in September. The programme involved energizers, discussions, cultural evenings and a trip to the town of Sighisoara - the birth place of count Dracula. Because the Czech group was coming form different parts of the Czech Republic, they had a lot of fun getting to know other dialects.

Digital Youth (15. - 25. 10. 2018, Turkey)

Because we really enjoyed the Digital Youth project, which we organized in October 2017, we decided to carry it out once more a year later. Our steps lead again to Turkey, this time to the touristic destination of Alanya. During the project, we organized a lot of non-formal learning activities in order to get familiar with the topics of intercultural dialogue and tolerance and we played various games in order to experience as much as possible on our own skin. At the same time, we had the opportunity to learn how to use the audiovisual equipment in various workshops carried out by professional filmmakers. In the second half of the project, we divided into filmmaking teams and each of the teams created their own film - there were 6 of them in total plus Aftermovie (a kind of "behind the scenes"). In our free time, we were getting to know each other, making friends, chilled at the beach and on the last day, we made a trip to explore the town of Alanya. On the last evening of the project, the moment we all expected finally took place and we watched the created movies. They were just as awesome as we expected them to be. We had a great time at the project and we are very much looking forward to making more movies in May in Armenia.

Nature and Primitive Technology (end of August 2019, Spain)

The youth exchange "Nature and Primitive Technology" will take place at the end of August in beautiful Spanish mountains near to the town of León, which is full of historical sights. There will be young people from the Czech Republic, Spain, Greece, Croatia, Finland and Italy. The aim of the project is to experience living in the countryside away from civilization and technology. We also often don't realize, how much easier technology is making our lives, so during the project, we want to try to take care of ourselves on our own - to cook a meal, create simple tools, etc. This will definitely lead us to discuss topics such as leadership or sustainability, we will also enjoy many teambuilding activities, interesting workshops and games and get to know new friends from various countries.

Green Youth Media (7. - 12. 10. 2018, Turkey)

Between 7th and 12th October, I took part in a training course Green Youth Media on the Turkish island of Gökçiada. As you can see from the name, the main topic of the course was building awareness about ecology amongst young people via media. The place where the project took place had its reason, this island in the north of Turkey is very naturally interesting, mainly geologically, the local government is trying to maintain sustainable tourism and protect the environment. The project was five days long and there were participants from the Czech Republic, Latvia, Netherlands, Romania, Greece, Spain and Turkey. At the beginning we did teambuilding activities, then we had theoretical lessons with our trainer Bruno. We digged deeper into the topic of media and communication, using the potential of web tools and social networks and acquiring digital competences. The whole course was based on our own initiative, we also had workshops about environmental activism, social media, graphic design, etc. We also visited several local institutions. The project was a good inspiration for more environmental projects on a bigger scale, as the island itself provides a lot of inspiration.

"EMpathY Emotional Management - The Path for Youth" (19. - 26. 9. 2018, Romania)

In September 2018, me, Jája and Nikol (who we found on the internet and immediately liked a lot) travelled to Romania to attend a training course for youth workers "EMPathY", in which we dealed with the topic of emotional management. From our trainer Oscar, we learned how to better work with our emotions and listen to the feelings of others, which will be very useful for us when working with young people in the future. In our free time, we had a lot of fun and also explored the beautiful countryside in the mountains, went to see the sunrise and visited a local truffle "farm". One day we also made a trip to Sighisoara and learned about its history. Me and Nikol also will probably never forget our trip to Cluj and sleeping at the airport in Bucharest and Jája her journey to Romania by train - sometimes you have to learn the hard way.

Finger-travelling (probably 27. 7. - 9. 8. 2019, Czech Republic)

Finger-travelling is a youth exchange that will take place during the summer holidays at our beautiful campsite next to the river Lužnice. It will bring together 26 young people from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Spain, Poland and Turkey. The topic of the project is getting to know the cultures that the participants come from. We will spend 5 days "travelling" around the world - each national team will have a whole day for themselves in which they will try to show the others as much as possible about the life in their countries. But we will learn much more by using various games and activities and at the end of the project, we will try to share what we learned also with others (the local people).  During the exchange, we will for sure organize a trip to some interesting location that we will choose together with the participants and there will definitely be also time to visit the nearby town of Tábor.
