Eduk8 - Endless Possibilities!
Cultural exchange, self growth, sharing passion - Discovering new things! Eduk8 is one of ESN International's most amazing projects!
Eduk8 is ESN’s international training project, which aims to empower ESN members to allow them to perform better in their ESN daily tasks. Also Eduk8 aims to create a pool of Trainers empowered with the tools and knowledge needed to educate and develop fellow members in the network. Every day ESN’ers all over Europe, work hard to support and develop our colourful network and while doing so they gain new skills and competences.
Benedikt & Ozhen participated in the Eduk8 Academy in Sarajevo in 2017. Read their stories here:
On the first day all workshops were designed to get background information and get a first idea of the different areas of social inclusion. I decided to start with a workshop about people with disabilities, where we got to know different types of disabilities and how they affect a human being. But afterwards, I also attended workshops on storytelling and if gender has ever decided for us, what we are supposed to do.Overall, the ESN Academy was very emotional and allowed to bond with ESN'ers from all over Europe and exchange not only best practices for our sections, but also to grow on a personal level and make experiences that will influence our life or at least mine. It helped to reinforce that we as ESN are standing for a united Europe and that we have still a lot of work to do to make sure that our environment is social inclusive and enables everyone to have the same opportunities to express themselves.
I'm extremely thankful that my local section ESN Odense and the National Board supported my participation at this Eduk8 event and even though I won't be active in my home section, I want to make sure to contribute to the ESN network in one way or another.'

ESN Academy in Sarajevo made me realise, if we stand together and help each other everything is possible. Kudos to the entire Eduk8 team, they did an amazing job and without their engagement and skills it would not have been a perfect academy'.
