Training and Volunteering in Akershus, Norway

Our first weekend in Norway we attended a Street Mediation Course. This lasted for two weekends and was about how to handle conflict and how to respond to challenging situations. It was held by our colleagues, the Youth Delegates from Colombia working in Tromsø, Diego and Henry. Together with Ronchester, Board member of the Red Cross Youth District in Akershus, they facilitated a great course.  

Volunteers from the Red Cross visitor service in Nes, Akershus attended a tablet course held by Telenor. We helped instruct and assist the trainers from Telenor in teaching the participants how to use a tablet. The local newspaper wrote an article about the course. You can read it here:

The 21st of October was the Global Dignity Day. We were supervisors in three different high schools, facilitating in the classrooms for working with the students on the topic of dignity. The students shared their experiences with each other and hopefully their awareness of the meaning of dignity were increased through this session.
