Another project post, but this time we were in Busteni, Romania hosted by @asociatia.oden (which btw were amazing facilitators and super creative during the activities).The project name was “Let’s vote for You(th) and E.U” and it took place from 26th of October till 6th of November involving 42 participants from Romania, Greece, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy, Poland and Lithuania. The main aim of the project was to increase youth involvement in national and EU elections. The methodology was based on nonformal education methods including presentations, world café, theatre, debates, video creation, role plays etc. And each and every activity was related to how to increasing voting, why is the absence of voting, who is responsible for it and how we could reduce it, how democracy works ect. I think we made a very good good group and the final visual results were amazing, also the time we spent there was great, we had so much fun and made great memories. More photos and the final visual materials can be found in the facebook page of the project (https://www.facebook.com/
