What was the biggest learning moments on the event for you?
Tarvi Kivipõld – I learned that it doesn’t matter where we are coming from, we all are same and we all should have equal rights.
Alo Kaasik – Learning from different people – about their worldview and past experiences.
Marion Demus – That people actually listen to what I have to say and they accept it.
Reiko Keir – Learning about new cultures.
Kätlin Tiidu – That i should take people the way they are as a person not for other aspects, such as looks or personality etc.
Johanna Perko – For me the biggest learning point was that I got to know more about the problems that affect different social groups. There were just so much problems I wasn’t aware before.
Do you have any plans to continue active in the field? If yes, what?
Tarvi Kivipõld – I’m going to share my story and experiences with others and maybe one day, who knows, going to another youth exchange.
Alo Kaasik – My studies are closely related to the subject, so yes. I’m planning to be something similar to a sociologist.
Marion Demus – I study sociology, other than that I don’t think so right now.
Reiko Keir – I hope so. To attend in other projects.
Kätlin Tiidu – Yes. I can now share my knowledge with others.
Johanna Perko – Yes, I have made plans to go voting and participate in different volunteering events.
Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?

Alo Kaasik – I would, it was intresting and fun.
Marion Demus – Yes! It was a week full of learning how to know your rights and be an active citizen, we also had so much fun on free time.
Reiko Keir – Yes. Good way to see the world and learn about other cultures.
Kätlin Tiidu – Definitely. It will teach so many different life-needed topics and your view of life can evolve so much.
Johanna Perko – Yes, I would recommend this to others, because it gives a really good opportunity to practice more English, see new places and gather new experiences.
