Date: 23rd January until 2nd February 2019
Country/City: Italy, Tortona
What was the main topic of the event?
Kristjan Kasesalu – Leadership
Kelly Solovjov – The main topic of the project was to learn how to make teamwork better and understand the dynamics of it. A lot of attention went also to understanding of being a better leader.
What was the biggest learning moments on the event for you?
Kristjan Kasesalu – Probably the knowledge and games we played. Also giving a class for local students.
Kelly Solovjov – We had lots of different activities during the project to understand more the dynamics of teamwork and leadership, but the biggest learning moment for me was, when we had this activity, where one of our group members had to lead other group members, who were blindfolded, for quite a long distance. It made me really understand the importance of trusting your team, especially the leader, and also how it actually is important to understand the groups dynamics and how to make everyone work together for one goal.
Do you have any plans to continue active in the field? If yes, what?
Kristjan Kasesalu – Not sure yet. Havent made up my mind yet. It was my 1st project ever.
Kelly Solovjov – Yes, I have. I am planning to do an activity in Estonia, like we did in Italy, for young people to help them discover the importance of teamwork.
Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?
Kristjan Kasesalu – Yes, of course. Really interesting, new ideas how to approach leadership, new friends. Also travelling and seeing new places you have never been before.
Kelly Solovjov – I would definitely recommend this experience to my friends, because these kind of projects not only teach you something about specific topic, but you get friends for life and with them you can use your project experience and help other people to learn more and that feeling is amazing!
