11"th July travel to Kardla: Participant Cafe

Tere to everybody!

We are on Monday 11th July and we starting the day in the bus going to the Kardla. We arrived to the city centre around 11 and then we have our first shopping experiences in Hiimuaa. Later we went to beautiful restaurant with nice grass fields around and the beach. Before waiting to eat, some people played football some others were lazy and some made funny games.

Finally at 13:30 we got a tasteful lunch attended by beautiful waitresses. It was nice taste of Estonian foods, afterwards in a hurry to participant cafe.

There two women made a presentation of Estonian unemployment insurance fund. Also Heleri gave us a more interesting presentation about EVS and Toomas talked about career consulting.

We were divided on five different groups to talk about: What government should do to decrease unemployment?, How does volunteer work increases the possibilities to find a job?, Higher /Vocational education, Promoting volunteering and the last one was basic education. Every twenty minutes we changed to different topic and the people taking part in the debating.

The topics were difficult because 20 minutes is not enough for finding solutions. At the beginning we were bored a bit but we were getting more interested on during the process.

Then back to Kalana.

Ending the day we were ready to have beach party with locals but we just found wind in our faces.
