Crossing Borders guide to trainings abroad
Going to a training course abroad may be one of the richest learning experiences. Being part of Crossing Borders will help you to achieve this opportunity.
Gone are the excuses for not going (too expensive, to much time, not being able to find an interesting course…)
With us, you will be able to travel abroad for just a week or two and participate in a training. And there´s more. It will be very cheap.
What can you expect from the training?
Huge part of every course is dedicated to learning – both in theory and in practice. You will work in international groups, share your experience and put your time into building partnerships.
In addition, you will also get the opportunity to explore the local culture. You will go to excursions, hang out with locals and try their food. During cultural nights, you will be able to represent Denmark – so don’t forget to pack some rye bread and licorice 😉
What will be the topics for the trainings?
There´s a wide variety of topics: digital media, facilitation, entrepreneurship, project development, sustainability, leadership and many others.
