What was the main topic of the event?
Anni Maria Pearson – Sexuality and sexual health.
Ingrid Veermäe- Sex education and youth workers` role in it.
Marcella Laura Polverino – Sex education.
What were the biggest learning moments of the event for you?
Anni Maria Pearson – That people do not actually know a lot about this topic. I was glad to see people interested in the matter, but also found it surprising how little was know to people at the same time.
Ingrid Veermäe- How sex education is taught so differently in different countries and how it impacts people.
Marcella Laura Polverino – I think the biggest learning moment for me was when I got introduced by different thoughts and ways of thinking of people from different countries.
Do you have any plans to continue being active in the field? If yes, in which way?
Anni Maria Pearson – I would love to continue learning and talking about sexual health, this includes the mental aspect of it as well.
Ingrid Veermäe- With this specific topic I do not know, generally speaking participating in even more Erasmus+ opportunities.
Marcella Laura Polverino – I think it was interesting to educate myself on this topic, but I believe I won’t go that deep into that in my future.
Would you recommend this experience to your friends? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Anni Maria Pearson – I highly recommend Erasmus+ training courses, I believe that you get to know a lot of knowledge, even if not from the training itself then at least from the participants and you make a lot of good contacts for your life.
Ingrid Veermäe – Definitely yes! Because it allows participants to learn more about a specific topic, get to know other people and cultures, and have lots of fun!!
Marcella Laura Polverino – Surely, if they want to know more about sex education and different methods how to teach and interact with youth when this topic comes up.
Other comments or anything else you would like to share? You can answer in your mother tongue if you want!
Anni Maria Pearson – You definitely need to be ok with getting out of your comfort zone, that is where the coolest things happen!
Marcella Laura Polverino – Välismaal on lahe!
