What was the main topic of the event?
Ekaterina Romanova – Non-violent communication
Robin Liebert – How to maintain a peaceful campaign/protest
Nikolai Kapustinskii – Youth for a Peaceful Society
What was the biggest learning moments on the event for you?
Ekaterina Romanova – The biggest learning moment was to get to know how public campaigns are done in all details, and how many theories and practices from different fields (linguistics, sociology, SMM, photography etc.) are involved in the process.
Robin Liebert – My biggest learning moment was what to speak to the audience. I have studied public speaking and I know how to speak to the audience but I never actually learned what to say. That information is probably the most useful for me personally. During the group work I also learned a lot.
Nikolai Kapustinskii – Lorenzo lecture about social media
Do you have any plans to continue active in the field? If yes, what?
Ekaterina Romanova – I would like to join a photo-activist club in recent future to try expressing myself through photography and contribute to activism as well.
Robin Liebert – Yes I do. I am planning to do a career in politics and all the information I learned will be very useful in pursuing that career. Also I work for a non-profit organization where I live and the skill to run a successful campaign is really useful there.
Nikolai Kapustinskii – Yes, I work on my own social media
Would you recommend it to your friends? I yes, why? If not, why not?
Ekaterina Romanova – I would totally recommend this experience, since it reminded me of many important stuff that I face in daily life but don’t usually define it, which is, in fact, a significant part of being a human in a society.
Robin Liebert – Yes. While the information I learned was important. It was also very well taught by the 2 trainers that were there. I have been to multiple projects and it is always the people that make it great not the topic.
Nikolai Kapustinskii – Yes, it was really good experience mostly because of our mentors Marco and Lorenzo.
Other comments or anything else you would like to share? You can answer in your mother tongue, if you want!
Ekaterina Romanova – Lorenzo is the best!
