By applying the methods of non-formal and informal learning, Luis Gómez had the opportunity to work directly with InterAktion’ target group (young refugees) and help them feel self-empowered. Also to able to better raise their voices in public discourses by enhancing their knowledge on political participation, cooperation, democracy, conflict resolution, European Union or identity. Luis’s Work took place in small groups to develop workshops based on your his experiences and ideas. With creative and active leisure activities, Luis did primarily support those young people who are involved only in a few (or none) activities apart of ours.
‘’Taking part in this project, I think I did grow as an independent, creative person, who took initiatives and deal with responsibilities. Moreover, I can also improved my ability to work in interdisciplinary and multiethnic group, develop and to advance complex projects about human rights, active citizenship and youth work. This experience did definitely contribute to shape my mind as openly international, providing me with the habit of dealing with different cultures and usages. I am really interested in taking part in more projects like this project, because I would like to improve my community in order to make people more consciousness and aware about this topics. I have been selected to work futher in these field , so I am trully happy abouth the experience I have gain with InterAktion No w I know that sharing experiences and knowledges with the other participants is important in order to acquire the skills to spread the information in the own society and motivate people to do and to change something in the own country.’’
