The group of participants was challenged to generate new ideas about the Youth in Action Program, particularly about EVS, concerning new possibilities and out-of-the-box solutions to problems needed to be addressed in the present action. Creative techniques were used in order to stimulate idea generation, such as: causality of free combining of ideas, brainstorming, mind mapping, co-creation and action planning.
