For participants it was good experience in intercultural environment to take part in training course, where they learnt basic topics about Gender Equality. After the project, on 8th of November, 2016 Georgian participants: Ketevani Piralishvili, Giorgi Tskhvarashvili and Teona Morgoshia made presentation for ICPI and Generators interns, where was discussed Gender Equality topics and situation in EU and Georgia. Project participants shared the experience and knowledge that they got during the training, and local volunteers and inters were asking questions, for them was very interested to get the answer how people think, and behave in different countries. This meeting was very important for ICPI to promote this topic among the people around, and to promote the Erasmus + project in general among local youngsters, because this way they understand how many chances we do have to gain information on different topics through non-formal education.
