Kadri Ainumäe – I do recommend it because it is not only teaching you new things about the topic but it is also improving your language skills, digital skills and social skills

Mari Põldma – Absolutely! This is a perfect way for young people to widen their view of the world. I have not regretted once that I have joined these projects.

Jan Arnar Põldma – Yes because they are good for widening your horizons because of the different environment and different People you meet. Also, you can make lifelong friends in these projects

Brenda Rosenberg – Yes, if some friends are interested something like that and they don’t know what they want to do with their lives, but no, if I know that their priorities are something else.

Robert Hekkurainen – Yes, I would. The experience you get from there is unique. All the new contacts, different cultures and super nice environment from the members of the project and also organisators. Away from working people are willing to have fun and do it the way it’s done in their country, which is always surprising. After the project you will always leave rich with friends and ideas.

Jan Arnar Põldma – It was a pleasure to be in this project, until next time mala***❤️

Brenda Rosenberg – Projekt polnud päris see, mida oleksin oodanud. Tegemist oli nagu väikese laagriga, kus kasutati kõike seda, mida internetist on võimalik ise kätte saada. Ei tundnud, et osaljad ise oleksid suutnud mulle pakkuda midagi uut ja kasulikke ideid. Oleks meeldinud, kui oleks mõni ettevõtjast külaline olnud nt, kellega erinevaid ettevõtte arengu etappe olek saanud arutada ja analüüsida. Teooriast jääb väheks, vaja oleks reaalseid olukordi ja praktilisi kogemusi, mida läbi mängida ja analüüsida, kuidas vastavas ettevõttes saaks/oleks saanud strateegiate ja teooriate abil paremini hakkama jne. Projekti sisu jäi kasinaks. Aga olen tänulik selle kogemuse eest ja nende uute tutvuste eest, mis see projekt võimaldas luua.
