Second training activity of the project

In view of the health crisis, we had to adapt the program of the second training activity of the project initially planned in Bordeaux.

This week, we therefore met online with our European partners as well as some of their students, learners or beneficiaries. We were able to work on the development of the game and the gallery through different workshops in sub-groups.
