8th edition of the Family Picnic in Opole

8th edition of the Family Picnic in Opole

We had a pleasure to participate in a great event – Family Picnic (8th edition) which was organized in Opole by CDO (Centrum Dialogu Obywatelskiego). The picnic takes place cyclically and provides an opportunity to present local NGOs.

During this event HOPP Association had an opportunity to conduct another workshop – “All you need is…WATER” among youth in Opole community. We have met with great interest of youth and gather a lot of workshop’s participants. 

Moreover, we had a possibility to inform other organizations about our project and its result which is e-course. We have invited them to join other students on our platform.

The picnic ran in a very nice, family atmosphere. The weather was good, so that the workshops could be held outdoors, in a beautiful scenery, right on the Odra River. Thanks to the organizers for the opportunity to take part in the event.
