The organization SEAL CYPRUS hosted a training course for youthworkers, teachers and volunteers with the focus on social media and mental health of young people. The Course happened in beautiful city of Larnaka between 18th and 26th March. ADEL was represented by Martina Majorošová and Veronika Tkáčová. They are both PhD students who actively works with youth at their home universities as the teachers.

The course gathered 20 participants from 10 countries from EU: Cyprus, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Spain, Greece, Portugal and Italy. Each country sent two representatives who are interested in media topic and actively work with youngsters. The main objective of the training was for the youthworkers to better understand the topic of the project and cultural differences between countries.

The sessions included topics of social media, body image, cyberbullying, self-esteem, anxiety ressistance, coping with stress, eating disorders and working with asylum seekers. During the training, there has also been a visit from Commisioner for Volunteering and NGO Yianniis Yiannakis, who talked about legislative changes and visions of cypriotic NGOs. Participants also visited a Youth Information Centre in Larnaka.

Thanks to the convenient location of the project, the participants had the opportunity to enjoy the sun and beach, take a trip to Nicossia and visit the marvelous historical center of Larnaca. During the evenings they could try international food from different countries prepared by other participants, or enjoy traditional dishes from Cyprus.

Sessions were held by proffessional trainers and psychologists who specialise in this topic. Participants were not only listening, but actively creating the content, because the programm was honoring the principles of non-formal education. It was funded by Erasmus+ Programme.
