Tiia Kontkanen: Networking and sharing values at a course in Tenerife

The ultimately best thing at the course was our group. We very quickly discovered that we have a super nice and social group consisting of people from Finland, Greece, Poland and Croatia. Everyone participating were eager to network, spend time together, share experiences and have short but fun free time trips around Tenerife together. We discussed a lot about our countries, cultures, education systems and practices.

This common sharing made me realize that as a trainer I have so much bigger peer group that I could have ever imagined. We shared common values in appreciating all the educational work we do and believing in the power of education both on societal and individual level. Even though we are from different cultures, backgrounds and experiences we encountered each other with utmost respect and positive social energy. My belief is that from this encounter we can continue in different kinds of common projects and for sure we’ll keep sharing our knowledge, skills and experiences and positive support in the future.
