“I escaped from my comfort zone it was very important for me, I met a lot of nice people, I found a lot of inspiration for my life and ideas to implement in my life.”
This was the reaction from one of the participants of “Open Up to Learn”, a training course co-financed by the Erasmus + Programme, that took place in Setúbal, Portugal, from 6th to 13th September 2015.
Marie and Esben from IPC Alumni took part in this training course, and had one work of IPC-style learning and fun together with 22 other young people from Albania, Armenia, Egypt, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, Norway
As part of IPC Alumni, you can also participated in these kind of courses. Keep an eye on our website and facebook group – both long-term and short term projects will be posted there, and many more projects are coming up for next year in countries like Denmark, Norway, Poland, Georgia, Bosnia and Portugal!
See you out there in the world!
