On September 12-20, 2017, the representatives of New Generation Humanitarian NGO participated in Erasmus+ funded antidiscrimination training course, Journey to Acceptance, in Gdansk, Poland. The training was aimed at training trainers through non-formal education methods to prepare them for the upcoming youth exchange project on antidiscrimination. The training days were full of information, energy, productive work and a lot of new impressions. Besides educational and fun indoor activities, the training also included exciting and informative outdoor activities such as team-building through sailing, tour around the city and meetings with three different organizations – Tolerado NGO, Sopot Integration and Support Centre, Council of Immigrants, dealing with the issues of vulnerable groups of population such as the LGBT+ people and communities, people with disabilities, drug users, migrants and refugees and many others. During the meetings the participants were acquainted with the activities these organizations do to address the needs and problems of the vulnerable groups of population. And this was a chance for the participants to think and see which of those activities could be applied in their own countries.
In all, the training course was very informative, active, useful and interesting equipping the participants with necessary knowledge and skills to lead the upcoming youth exchange in November.
