There were in total 20 participants from Greece, Catalunya, Bulgaria and Ukraine. It was a very interesting mix since some participants had immigrant roots, so there was a lot of cultural aspects to be shared. The group stayed in a beautiful house on the typical Catalan  village of Mura that felt like a fairytale. For 8 days, the 5 youth leaders and coordinator organized several activities promoting discussion of all types of discrimination through non-formal education.

There were active debates, theatre, group work, water and outdoors games and a lot more. It was a wonderful opportunity for participants to learn from others and also share their thoughts and plans. In the end, it was truly hard to leave and friendships had been made, just like minds had been opened.
