Summer School in Croatia, July 2018

We met our project partners and their students from Ohrid/Bitola, Skopje, Vlora and Nis in Split, Croatia for a summer school. In a friendly enviroment and through discussions in mixed groups and various activities, the students learned more about the topic and different cultures and became active by themselves. There were also short presentations by every teacher and extra-curricular activities. Every participant will receive a copy of the REAL14 book published by the project team in 2018.

We hope that the project will be continued in 2019 with additional new partners.
