The participants were 32 scouts and cub scout leaders from HASK (Armenian National Scout Movement), as well as 10 scout participants from the Scout Movement of Georgia. The trainings were conducted by the trainers from Denmark: Martin Kristensen and Anne Marie Boye.
The aim of the study training was to develop the participants’ knowledge and skills as well as prepare them for operating on national level. T he theoretical and practical works, as well as the rest hours in the evenings were full and interesting too. During the project was a mid-cultural evening, where two participants from Armenia and Georgia represented their national dances, songs and cuisine.
