In this regard, our team is excited to share with you our results . Partners were organizations from Bulgaria, Romania and Cyprus. The project united two innovative concepts, “Ecocentric Development” and “Positive Psychology”, and used them to develop methods to increase efficiency in youth work. The methods, tools and programs developed in the project can be used with equally good results both for the personal and professional development of youth workers and for supporting the growth of young people. They are also effective in working with children or adults.
Use them with joy!
