The participants of this project were involved in different activities through the methodology of non-formal education such as simulations, role playing, open space discussions, brainstorming, ice-breakers and reflection groups. By using this non-formal education methods the participants developed leadership skills to become relevant actors locally and at a European level. The development of such competencies will be helpful for young people to apply it in their everyday life, but most importantly in everyday work in their NGOs and local communities.
