Several trainings took place in 22 high schools in 7 provinces, each representing one geographical region of Turkey; outreaching approximately 1500 students with different backgrounds.
This project is considered as one of the best examples in the youth work field and it has both domestic and international reputation. The Understanding Europe Project is ending with a closing ceremony at the European Parliament, hosted by the Member of European Parliament Vural Oger, on May 14th, 2008."
