Those who follow FIMCAP activities may already know that over 60 participants from 20 member organizations from all over the world spent their July 2022 at World Camp in Botswana*. Now, when it is already almost the mid of October outdoors, the crazy World Camp journey has just finished with the reflexive Closing seminar in Barcelona, Spain (6th-10th of October 2022).
During the World Camp, the week of teamwork on projects in different local communities is supposed to be the most applied, intense, and unforgettable experience. But as practice shows, projects in local communities are far not the only outcome participants can fulfill together. That is why after each World Camp edition the part of participants from Europe (offline) and other continents (online) are getting additional chance to meet and create together during the Closing seminar.
This year the Closing seminar has appeared to be really fruitful, so we are glad to share it products with whole Fimcap Community.
1. Sources of inspiration for local group leaders
World Camp brings together leaders of local youth groups from all over the world. So, the exchange of games, dances, energizers, and other fun activities is an inevitable part of the WoCa. In order not to forget all of them, Kasane and Tonota project team created several YouTube playlists with recordings of materials everybody can use during meetings with children.
