The participants worked on communication skills, conflict resolution techniques, and entrepreneurial thinking.
The programme was based on interactive and participative methods. The methods were selected to promote creativity, communication and active participation. The non-formal education tools included individual, pair and group work, creative workshops, theatre methods, simulation and situation games, problem solving and debate exercises, presentations and discussions.
