Still thinking? Feel free to read this article. Alexandra Corbu our Marketing Communications Responsible had a amazing experience in our project from last year held in Vasarosnameny (project "Be entrepreneur").

"I miss so much this experience, but who wouldn’t? I felt so good and free. We had a large yard with green grass and the weather was great, thus we did most of the activities outside. During the project we had bikes available and the organizers encouraged us to ride them as much as we could and discover the surroundings - one of the aims of the project was also promoting of the area."
