A youth exchange about emotional intelligence and empathy
The project will address the following needs of the young participants: understanding and managing their own emotions, coping with emotions in stressful situations; building self-esteem; increasing adaptability in unfamiliar contexts; improving communication; increasing accuracy in interpreting others’ messages; interacting in intercultural context; practicing their English; creating friendships that cross the barriers of the country; learning about Erasmus+ programme and the opportunities that it offers.
The project is available for anyone who is interested in the topic of emotional intelligence and empathy and is willing to work on the needs described above. NO high level of English is required to participate; moreover, the project will help in the development of English speaking skills.
