Description: I participated in the training course ‘Developing competencies to respond to changing youth (work) context and extremisation‘ during 3-8 April 2016 in Lithuania.

During this activity I developed my personal and professional competences specifically described in relation to key-competences for lifelong learning. Project was co-funded through EU Erasmus+ programme.
