The group will be introduced into a series of non-formal activities aimed to boost the team spirit and get to know each other, designed by specialised facilitators using interactive workshops.
During the second phase, the focus will be on digital tools and cyberbullying. We will enjoy the stunning landscapes of the Black Sea and will develop intercultural competencies.
The last days of our project will be dedicated to our communities. Together we will design a dissemination plan and work on the promotional movie and website of our project, to share back with the community the results of our mobility.
All costs connected to transport, accommodation, activities, and meals are covered by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
