‘Let’s make lasting, positive change for the common good’ 28 June -5 July 2016, Ráby, Czech Republic
This Erasmus+ Training course about youth entrepreneurship brought together people from Armenia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Italy, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine for nine days in Ráby, a village in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic, an hour away from Prague.

The project’s main aim was to bring together people who are interested in using outdoor activities as methods for learning in youth exchanges and help them understand better the educational approach of active methods. We were encouraged to develop and diversify their training and facilitating skills in an open space environment.
The project’s programme included information about the need to encourage and provide opportunities for outdoor learning within a safe learning environment, creating a clear feedback and mutual support between us. We also were able to develop outdoor learning circles, an activity that can be thoroughly studied and analysed for further development within the context of the experiential learning.

This training course offered me the opportunity to be interested and motivated in developing a range of organized activities that could take place in a variety of ways in predominantly outdoor environments.
