Participants had the opportunity to learn more about socio-cultural background of other participating nations not only through intercultural evening, but also due to prepared activities every evening, e.g. dance classes, board games and special activity called “The Duke of Slettestrand”.
At the end of the course every participant received a Youthpass certificate with all competencies that he had acquired during the training course.
