By augmenting their knowledge and capabilities on this matters, youth workers were able to multiply it with their youth, making them able to use their skills in projects with a voluntary basis. In this period where the unemployment, especially through the young people, has reached very high levels, to acquire this kind of competence makes a huge difference, gaining skills for life. For 7 days, the 24 participants, coming from 8 countries from EU and SEE, worked together in Durres, in Albania, sharing their knowledge and ideas, challenges and opportunities, cooperating to achieve their goal using different working styles.
One of the key point of the training was the creation of new projects, at local or international level, and new networks for a sustainable cooperation. Throughout all the course, non-formal education was the main methodology, with practical methods such as simulations, round tables, open space for discussions, role plays and anything stimulating the creativity and active participation of participants going towards their learning needs, making them gain experience directly on their skin. There were also theoretical inputs, analyzing success stories and sharing best practices for inspiration in future work.
