Inspiring 5-days Comeet+ training in Matera

Team building activities, project based learning, best practices, creativity workshops and so on. It was all part of the Comeet+ training in Matera, Italy. In May, Nynke and Marie-jetske together with Gysbert Bergsma and Guydolph Dijkstra spent one week in Matera, European Capital of Culture 2019, to receive training on how to stimulate entrepreneurial skills development amongst youth.

BDF invited Gysbert and Guydolph to attend this training. They are the founders of VerbindMij (ConnectMe) and match uneducated and unemployed young people with mentors. In our view the perfect candidates for this training, as they operate in the heart of the community.

Nynke and Marie-jetske kicked-off the training programme with a team building activity in which the group, consisting of 20 trainees from all over Europe, had to solve a number of questions/assignments in a limited time frame. This game involves many entrepreneurial skills including creativity, teamwork, delegation, time management, problem-solving, planning, decision-making, taking initiative and stress management. Trainees were very enthusiastic about the activity.

After 5 days of successful training, trainees returned home with loads of inspiration and ideas to stimulate entrepreneurial attitudes of young people in their region.
