Experiencing Leadership

Youth Exchange, 2 – 12 November 2015, Little Gaddesden, UK

Aleka: There is no doubt that I am glad about my participation in this programme. I had the chance to learn about martial arts like judo, karate and kick boxing and to practise every day. Apart this, I acquired a lot of information on leadership topic. Personally, I am goinguse all thisknowledge on my business. Also, the hospitability was really warm and hosts so smiling and friendly. The team had less than ten participants so we werereally close to each other. Fortunately for us we had a free day so we spent a whole day in London. One of the drawbacks was that the hostel was far away from inhabitable area so every time we had to walk at least 3km to find a mini market or internet connection.

Yiannis Lampropoulos , 19 , Thessaloniki:Being back to base since 4 days, I think I have totally understood what happened the past 10 days in England. First of all, I have taken part in the UK Leadership Experience in Little Gaddesen, a place that is way peculiar , to me, in relation with my thoughts about England. That’s why because when I was thinking about UK, London was coming to my mind all the time. However, that isolated village with not more than 500 people was the perfect location for the workshop.We were starting our day with a hot cup of coffee and an interactive activity which was different from day to day – discussion, acting, pantomime, drawing etc. – before engaging in martial arts.
