The training course was implemented online during 2 weekends ( 2nd, 3rd, 9th and 10th of October) from 3 pm to 6.30 pm. We decided dates and time according to participants’ availability and taking into consideration the time difference between partner countries, especially between Mexico and Vietnam.

In total we trained 35 participants from partner organizations coming from NFE sector and with different backgrounds.

The training was supposed to take place on-site in Vietnam. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, partners agreed to implement it online. This change required us to adapt the training format to the online fruition, in view of the fact that the main topic and activities were related to the Education Through Sport.
