    Puppet It! Creative Entrepreneurship youth exchange was a great project organised by SMIT “CREATOR” NGO i Rabka – Zdrój. Topic of our activities was raising the interest of entrepreneurship among youth. We met people from different countries and shared our points of view on starting business career, advertising or start – ups. This experience gave me exclusive opportunity to learn something new from young people from such far away located countries as Portugal or Cyprus. I'm sure the experience and knowledge I gained at this training will be very useful and important in my future.

    The youth exchange "Puppet it! Creative entrepreneurship" was a project organized Stowarzyszenie Młodzieżowych Inicjatyw Twórczych "CREATOR" from 23trd-30 September and I had an opportunity to participate in it.
    The youth exchange took place in Rabka­Zdrój, the southern Polish city, famous for its spas and highland climate. For the entire week I had been developing leadership, managment, team-building and creative thinking skills ­ all which is needed to become more competitive in the future labour market. Together with people from Cyprus, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Italy, Portugal, Romania and of course Poland we've learnt will learn how to launch our own business by getting different entrepreneurial skills and practical knowledge.
    Work in an international and multicultural environment is becoming more and more common. According to this the cultural diversity of the project was certainly an advantage of this exchange. Activities like creating and presenting the advertisement of the product were designed to learn how to work under the time pressure and how to efficiently solve problems.
    “Puppet it!...” was an interesting experience. It helped me to understand the mechanisms related to entrepreneurship aspects.

    A project that combined intercultural exchange with entrepreneurship skill development was established in a fun and creative way in Rabka Zroj. Thanking the organizers for a program that included business plan design with handcrafts skill with hand on practice on creating puppet out of everyday items. With upcycling methods our puppets came to life with videos and other publications ready to teach our youth with non-formal methods on how they can sustain a small business with little basic knowledge on economics as well as developing critical thinking about ideas that can become reality. This project practiced a series of competences and introduced Erasmus+ respectively.

    We had a excellent time and multicultural experience in Rabka Poland, during the YE "Puppet it! Creative Entrepreneurship"
    Excellent group with participants from very different parts of Europe worked together on their soft skills towards an excellent program about young Entrepreneurship.
    Very well conducted by the organizers, and with a comfortable and safe environment, making sure that the young participants from different countries and cultures were eager to learn from each other and work together in the tasks assigned to the group(s).
    Rabka is a really beautiful and small village in the mountains, which allowed us to have a very relaxed environment to work, the conditions of the hotel were great, we can only thank for the way everybody dealt with us.
    As Team Leader for Portugal, this was my second project as participant and I was happily surprised to being able to cooperate in some parts of the program. The Team Leaders meetings were very interesting with everybody putting their input on the project building an even better union to the group and allowing us to open our network to our NGO's.
    I'm extremely happy that I've been involved in this project, and I'm looking forward to work with SMIT CREATOR on next projects.

    We had the time to make interesting group activities and we had the possibility to talk about that. From our point of view the presentation of the different results of the group activities and the discussion with all the participant was the most important thing (immediate feedbacks). We are happy because we had the possibility to talk (several times) all together about the project and our ideas.
    Another important thing about the project is that we had the feeling that all the activities were connected and that we were working for our final goal.
    We learned a lot about team working with different people and in different situations (stress-tired).
    We also appreciate the fact that the people of SMIT “CREATOR” were always ready to listen our suggestion and make some changes if it was necessary.
    Our evaluation about the project is positive.

    I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your site. It looks like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before. Appreciate it
