Yesterday (9 May 2022) the second LTT hosted by Jump association officially opened in Soverato (Calabria): the M.O.T.H.E.R. Social Economic Forum.
This event is part of a wider frame characterized by the Euro.Soul Festival that JUMP Association has been organizing since 2013 to celebrate the Europe Day (9 May).
This year, however, it takes on a particular flavour as it coincides with ten years of intense and prolific activity in European projects by the same Calabrian association.
In order to get off to the best possible start and in a fun way, yesterday morning all the partners of the M.O.T.H.E.R. project gathered outdoors in the beautiful town of Soverato and took part in an open-air team building game entitled:
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 9/05 SPECIAL EDITION.
The large team composed of 26 M.O.T.H.E.R. participants from Portugal, North Macedonia, Greece, Hungary and Lithuania (joined by 11 other teachers participating in the Erasmus Plus mobility) was divided into 6 groups, mixing their countries of origin to foster mutual knowledge and stimulate more team building.
Basically, the whole game was based on direct interaction with local people.
All the participants tried to communicate in English with the people they met, in order to discover the curiosities and the main cultural attractions that characterise the local heritage and that can hardly be discovered through books or other information channels.
In addition, by trying to carry out the tasks assigned by the Jump team as well as possible, they were able to enjoy all the most attractive spots in the Calabrian town.
It was a beautiful morning in which the participants had the opportunity to have fun and get their bearings in the Calabrian scenario where interesting activities will take place and there will be many surprises for the M.O.T.H.E.R. team ready for other exciting challenges.
