Date: 5th until 12th august 2019

Place: Velbert, Germany






What was the main topic of the event?

Kai Budrikas – Videomaking

Annika Paas – To teach youth workers how to shoot, edit and distribute online videos.


What was the biggest learning moments on the event for you?

Kai Budrikas – The biggest learning moment for me was after the project. I realized that I really want to visit Germany again in the future and maybe continue my studies there. I also realized that after all of the Erasmus+ projects I have been to I feel more free to communicate with foreigners and I now have more confidence to try studying abroad.

Annika Paas – It’s Important to start somewhere and everything else will come naturally. We can do a lot even when we don’t have a lot of things.

Do you have any plans to continue active in the field? If yes, what?

Kai Budrikas – Yes. I am going to help another NGO with organizing two youth exchanges in Estonia.

Annika Paas – Yes, I want to make more videos and I will also participate in more Erasmus+ projects


Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?

Kai Budrikas – Yes, I definitely would. Any kind of experience abroad is a great experience and will probably change one’s world.

Annika Paas – Yes, because in addition to learning about videomaking, I met also people from a lot of different countries who showed me that we are supported and loved just the way we are

Kai Budrikas – During the dates of our project there were actually two projects hosted at the same venue and we had a chance to meet people from Malawi, Africa. This experience was amazing as well because it was educating to compare Estonia’s culture and traditions to the Malawian ones. Thank you once again for the amazing people brought together, Natalia and JuBuK!
