On our very first training, excitement and nervousness could not be missing. The preparations were ready and when the school bell rang, we walked in the classroom and saw about twenty curious stares. Confidently, me and my partner had begun a warm-up game, to get cracking.
For this supportive training, we had a special guest, Delia Nita – expert on the field of antidiscrimination, who has presented us the antidiscrimination campaigns. We found out what a convincing and well done campaign needs to contain. The first point of our campaign consists in identifying the problem, which helps us to achieve it in the best conditions.
