From the 25th to the 30th of November, 18 youth workers (2 per partner country) participated in a training which took place in Malenovice, Czech Republic. During a week they discovered the content of the handbooks and learned how to implement the different art strategies.
This training was a success, youth workers appreciated the workshops, and built a great group cohesion which will be helpful during the second part of the project.
Marilyn Aquilina from Malta said:
The FACE training helped me become more aware about the presence of cyberbullying and how it can occur in everyday life. The artistic tools learnt throughout the week will certainly be a creative and interesting approach to present and tackle the issues pertaining to cyberbullying with our groups of students.
In parallel with this training, all partners gathered at the occasion of the second international project meeting which occurred from the 27th to the 28th of November. The nine partners discussed the status of the project and the produced materials. They also exchanged the strategies regarding the activities that the youth workers will develop with students and teens during the second phase of the project. Other project aspects were addressed, such as communication, financial and administrative issues.
