”With a rather intense and busy schedule, the project opened the eyes of the participants on the risks that surround us and what are the dangers that can arise from various forms of discrimination! I believe that the success of this project consisted in the variety of methods used from teamwork to direct contacts with locals in the cultural capital of Europe 2022, as well as through individual studies or role-playing games!”
