A combination of personal training and digital readiness highlights the pillars of this training week that took place at the University of Niš, Serbia between 13th – 17th December 2021. The participants enjoyed the experience not only by the water content and professional development trainings, also the hospitality of the hosts in Niš; Borko and his family, the university and the water community brought the training week to be one to remember.
“We received a very warm welcome in Niš and the people we have met there made our training week fantastic. I hope we can make the EJWP training week in Colmar as rich as possible in terms of cultural exchanges, and well integrated into the local context.” Manon Berge, EJWP2 participant and the host of the next training week at ACTeon Environment, Colmar, France.
The first two days focused on the digital readiness pillar where EJWP2 participants explored the horizons of digital tools and serious games in water education through engaging in SMARTEN project activities.
