Review KISS eco-social entrepreneurship workshop

youth in action logo36 participants from Lithuania and five dunaVision countries including  five participants from Think Camp have participated in July in a one week eco-social entrepreneurship workshop called “Kiss entrepreneur” in Lithuania organized by Lina Sodžiutė, director of PROFAT.  profat logo

The training program financed by the EU Youth in Action program helped to deepen youth trainers knowledge on entrepreneurship methods mainly based on non formal education principles. The training was dedicated to prepare the young people from Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Lithuania to strengthen their fasilitator skills and encourage them to work with youth groups using methods for entrepreneurship.

During the preparation phase in spring 2013 the expert representative partners of the youth organizations prepared and tested entrepreneurship methods that composed the workshop.

The team came from the following organizations: Think Camp non profit cooperative (Germany); University of Information Technology and Management (Poland); University of South Bohemia, faculty of economics (Czech Republic); The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Targovishte (Bulgaria); Zavod Bob Institute (Slovenia) and Public institution “PROFAT” (Lithuania).

998327_388147167977874_1507466023_nThe exitement of the workshop were endless discussions on different understandings on cross cultural, cross sectoral and cross generational differences on topics such as eco social entrepreneurship, understanding distinctions of social responsible enterprise,  leadership approaches, assessments of teams and planing approaches. All the participants had a really good time and have learned a lot. Thanks Lina for these days and this great workshop!

Dinner talk at Mr. Dinescu´s restaurant in Bucharest

DSCN7616In Bucharest we had the chance to have dinner at a restaurant owned by one of the famous personalities of recent Romanian history: writer, poet and civil rights activist Mircea Dinescu. As a writer an magazine editor, he began to openly criticise Ceausescus regime in 1988. After an anti-totalitarian interview published by the French newspaper „Libération“, Dinescu was held under house arrest.

In December 1989, the writer was taking part in the occupation of the National Television building in Bucharest and proclaimed the end of Ceausescus dictatorship.

DSCN7603Dinescu continued working as a journalist after the revolution and began investing some of the money he earned with his books and publications in agriculture.

Dinescu bought a vineyard and began to cultivate wine in cooperation with Austrian partners. On his property, Dinescu tries to combine agriculture, winemaking and cultural aspects, as his wife Maria told us. Sergiu,  project manager for Mister Dinescu, adds that the house has always been an inspiring place for all kinds of people and the intention is to keep it that way.

DSCN7632Go and have dinner at „lacrimi si sfinti“ if you are in Bucharest (the food and wine are superb), you might see mister Dinescu if you are lucky!

Arriving at the Black Sea

delta4Finally we have reached the Black Sea. A speed boat of a local took us for almost 2 hours from Murighiol to Sf. Gheorge where the Danube flows into the Black Sea.  The final destination of our six months trip – what a special moment.

Dunja, Mariam, Sarah, Johannes, Sabine, Julian, Lili, several cows and thousands of morquitos came together in Sf. Gheorge, a village in the middle of the Biosphere Reserve of the Danube Delta.

delta28The Delta is known for its astonishing nature with lots of bird kinds and wild nature. In deed we were very surprised of the pleasant atmosphere of a village without cars, cows lying on the beach and free horses which we´ve also met in the middle of the night in front of our cabin. In Sf. Gheorge there is only one main road busy with horse carriages of the locals, some cows and horse roaming around. We enjoyed the walk to our lovely cabins on this sandy road very much, observing also nice farm pensions decorated with flowers, with grapes and chickens in the yard.

DSCN8468Our sleeping place was the campsite of “greenvillage” where a dozen of cabins are spread in a large area with a small restaurant and bar and also a large moving screen where people may enjoy movies in the night. Morning walks to the beach gave us the opportunity to see incredible sun rises over the Black Sea. Unfortunately we`ve also found spots of trash on the sandy beach like beer coasters, butts of cirgerettes lying and plastic packages and bottles which some of us collected.

We enjoyed a lot the swimming in the sea as a relief from the long journey. Playing and walking in the sand gave us also the chance to reflect on all the pictures in our minds from the people who were with us, all the visits, talks and wonderfull moments.
