Three volunteers of “Mladiinfo Montenegro” organization Vuk Lakovic, Jelena Dedic and Nikola Zarkovic participated on a training called “Empowering minorities” in Durres In Albania. Nikola Zarkovic tells his experiences.
“Training in Albania, despite its own informal character, for me personally is a great experience. First of all, I participated on one of these types of training for the first time in a very hospitable country. Staying in Durres was of multiple importance as for me such as for the other members of Montenegrin team. Beside me, from Montenegro were Vuk Lakovic and Jelena Dedic and we all have great impressions and memories, because of our acquired knowledge and learned skills, and because of impressive tour of the city provided by organizer.After arriving and staying in a very good hotel, not far from the city center, we met with organizers and a good part of the rest participants, and from the very next day training started in a full steam. Introductory lectures about working whit minorities and introducing many students who were in the Erasmus program were enough sign that this was a serious training, which what organizers showed from the start.Participating at lectures, various exercises and discussions, I learned a lot in the field of working with minorities which was the topic of the group where I was. Namely, after the lectures were presented and the tools for the papers, the participants were divided into two groups. We worked on the project with colleagues from the same language area, but also with participants from Romania, Chez Republic, Serbia, Greece and Macedonia.”
