Appetizer: Seminar in Turkey

13The name of this seminar represents the entire idea – to motivate (“appetite”) people to expand their activities internationally! The idea for ‘Appetiser’ was born in 2004, where the need for new beneficiaries in the EU “Youth” programme (now ‘Youth in Action’, soon ‘Erasmus+ | Youth in Action’) was expressed.
