The project realized to provide the participants with hands on experience as during the exchange there were visits to various thematic sites such as landfills, nature reserves among others.  In addition, environmental experts gave talks and gave chance to the participants to pose questions in order to widen the discussion and pave the way for two-way communication. The partakers also tackled environmental policies of the European Union with presentations and follow-up with workshops.
