Draw your future, Turkey

Do you like to draw? And what do you usually draw? Peaceful landscapes when you are relaxing at home or fun sketches when you want to keep a memory of bright emotions. Or maybe obscure characters in the corners of the paper during a telephone conversation?

Now the participants of the international training cource "Draw Your Future!" know that drawing can even be the image of future cooperation projects! And if you add plastic sculpting, then the future will start playing with new colors!

From May 4th to May 10th, 2017, the small town of Odemish, in northern Turkey, became a true easel for the creativity of 23 participants from Albania, Greece, Italy, Turkey and Ukraine.

The international project "Draw Your Future!" was organized to promote the development of project management skills  and to create a strong network of young leaders and civic organizations that will cooperate in the long term period and will assist other organizations across Europe who wish to develop their skills in this area.

Thanks to the Erasmus+ program and the organizational work of the international NGO “CEIPES Italy”, during  a week  the participants of the training had a unique opportunity to deepen their own knowledge and gain new skills in the field of active citizenship and community development, to familiarize themselves with their own experience of their colleagues and to develop a plan for further projects.

In addition to the intensive curriculum, participants improved their competencies in non-formal education, received an appropriate Youthpass, and traveled to the historic sites of beautiful Turkey!
