I had the opportunity to take part in this beautiful project, S-FEST, in Baía das Gatas, a small village in Cape Verde, Africa. It was so motivating and hopeful to be around all the people that were gathered there to help this small community.
We shared an excellent experience during the training of the European Erasmus+ project From Peer to Peer that took place in Leuven, Belgium from September 30th to October 8th of 2017. During those nine days organized by Melanie Van Oort, we exchanged, in a very effective and lively way, educational methodologies that focused on better education from the point of view of social inclusion, combating discrimination, segregation and bullying.
From 8th to 12th of May, six professionals on the field of psychology were given the opportunity by Action Synergy to attend a training in Vilnius about applied behavior analysis and autism within the framework of ABA project.
When i found out about the StartUpcycling project i got really excited! I spent a lot of hours of a Sunday morning to fill up the application. After that, I was praying for a positive response from the Action Synergy team. Finally, after some days I got the happy news. Officially, I would be one of the 25+ people, from 7 different countries, gathering for the first time in Berlin in order to StartUpcycling!
My experience in the StartUpcycling project can be described as an unexpected and unique chance to be involved in an inspiring field, with well-informed participants coming from around the world, for a remarkable purpose.
