Saturday wasn't a lazy weekend, instead it was quite busy, but full of excitement and attractions. The place of our meetings became a real experience exchange fair, where we discussed project information and games. Those who attended the meeting had an opportunity to participate in the city game and to discover various possibilities of social commitment, they could share their thoughts on what voluntary service is for them. During the meetings the participants were given a chance feel like a blind person and to learn the basics of sign language. The Greek group invited us to a refugee simulator which enable us to face the same difficulties and routes which refugees had to overcome. Italians invited us to very interesting workshop Watch – Share – Sow.
After a hard and intensive day there was a prize waiting for us - food. Tired and very, very hungry we sat together. It was a time for us. During the dinner we could take tests to check whether we remember our names, tell anecdotes, spend some time together and share the dessert ( Fabio - in the name of the polish girls I'd like to thank you for the great dessert - it was the best). Sunday was the time to sum the whole project up, both in terms of organization and merits-related subjects. We were sightseeing Barcelona and had an unforgettable goodbye party which was full of attractions and surprises.
Our few days in Barcelona were filled with emotions, work and talks. But most of all, it was a time we spent together. Thanks to that time each of us could feel like a part of the project, that we have a real impact in building the open and tolerant Europe. Despite different nationalities, age and cultures, we were able to leave our boarders behind, without crossing others' boarders. We got to know ourselves and others.
We came back to Warsaw full of energy, inspirations, enthusiasm and faith, that to make a change and build something better, we need to try our hardest.
Dear E-Volution team, we would like to thank you for you candour, understanding, patience and never ending energy resources. You're great!
Hopefully, see you soon!
