The fourth month of EYE in Sassari, April, project design and implementation.
The theme of April – working under pressure and tight schedule.
Like I mentioned last month, in March, project work continued. 21st of the month was another deadline – KA2 strategic partnership for adult education and VET. April 26 was another deadline – KA2 strategic partnership for Youth. This time I was trusted the task to design the project on my own. This means, I could come up with the concept, research the context, do the needs analysis, find and build the partnership. This was an exciting opportunity for me, as I love creating new ideas, do research and developing the curriculum, thinking about the implementation in case the project is successfully funded.

The countries involved in the project are the following: Italy and Sweden – in total 44 participants. The overall aim of the project is to foster creative and innovative methodologies of non-formal education between Sweden and Italy creating an important educational path between the two countries.
The combination of Hip Hop and Parkour is used because is a perfect communication channel to reach nowadays teenagers since the sub-culture of young urban citizens is pretty familiar with the use of street arts as a social glue among peers. I took great pleasure in being part of this project, as I learned a lot as a facilitator, as well as had a lot of fun with amazing young people.
And, like always, especially with the weather becoming summer-like, I am exploring the best of Sardinia, and I am in love.
