“Let’s go outside” – Training course or Teddy Bear’s Saga

Regardless, that I’d been at very few Erasmus+ projects (only two actually), I’ve noticed one rather special thing about them: people there get along much faster than they do in a regular context, and this training course isn’t an exception.

The little town of Băile Tuşnad (the smallest town in Romania) and its embracing peace-making atmosphere created a wonderful background for the event. The only spicy element of this idyll were the local bears that frequently and shamelessly had promenades around the place. This fact had a special weight when we (me and Alex (my trip partner)) had learned that we’d arrive there in the middle of the night without being sure where should we go after and if anybody had to meet us.

But let’s talk about the training itself. The first part of it consisted, mostly of theory regarding youth work and a set of outdoor activities for youngsters. But the really interesting things started when we had to apply the theory learned in practice. I still remember that freezing feeling when I was standing in front of a group of innocent children, scared as if they were a pack of grizzlies. Actually, everything went pretty fine, but our trainer (Vitalie) still had some little points to give us a bit of a hard time. Nevertheless, that wasn't the only exciting experience. Walking on a rope between trees, first by yourself, then in pares with somebody and after that a zigzag rope-road with a whole crowd on it and with 3 long sticks as the only support… I tell you, it’s really something. But what a cake without a cherry on top… For the final team-building we had to cross the Olt river on foot. Real water flow, real stones under it, there was no time for jokes (just kidding).

Regarding overall atmosphere, it was just awesome. That little space where we all gathered built really close ties between participants. We felt like a big family where each member came to another reality to clean and refresh his/her mind. But don’t forget about bears. They, literally, were paying us visits during training sessions and night walks through the town (but don’t worry, everyone is alive). I guess that feel of danger is one of the reasons why we got along so well.
What else can I say… That was cool.

P.S. Just keep calm and go ahead with Erasmus+.

Be Super Social! We are still looking for 3 motivated participants from Moldova.

In the era of social media and constant access to internet the concept of ‘socializing’ has changed dramatically.

Nowadays, if you want to have your voice heard, you need to create networks, manage contacts, display content and most importantly – be social in the social media. But is this ‘shouting contest’ anyway useful in the youth work? The project ‘Super Social” is designed precisely to find that out.

— If you are interested in social media mechanisms and tools used in your daily activity;
— You want to know how to build strong social campaigns (both in social and ‘traditional’ media);
— You want to create innovative ways of promotion that are relevant both for NGOs and in business sector;
— If you wonder how can gamification be used as a method for engaging youth and stakeholders;
— If you want to explore technical tools in photography and videography;
— You have to share experience and knowledge on social issues with other participants from different countries and initiate future partnership;
