In the period of 1-8 November 2013, Derzsi Katalin and Ráduly Attila, representatives of the Green Sun Association participated on a first aid course in the city of Eceabat, Turkey. The photos taken on the training are available on the association’s facebook page.
The Turkish organizer association has carried out several projects and so they’ve faced many unexpected problems, minor injuries and they didn’t really knew what would be the best or the right step to be followed. The course was organized with the aim to help other organization’s leaders, especially those who work with young people in their projects. The one-week-long course has proved to be really useful. The representatives of the 5 countries (Germany, Croatia, Latvia, Turkey and Romania) returned to home enriched with a basic knowledge about first aid and life-saving. In addition to the training’s main theme there was a good opportunity to develop new projects, to create new partnerships and new friendships have been concluded. At the same time, thanks to the organizers, the fifteen-member team had the opportunity to visit the historical Troy, which left a long lasting experience in participants’ lives. In the framework of the training there took place a hiking tour on the Gallipoli Peninsula where participants could learn from Vural Celikoglu trainer about the rules and secrets of survival.
