"Another Extraordinary Educational Adventure. Trans-Siberian" - Partnership Building Seminar with study visits elements

13.06.20 bis 19.06.20
Seminar, international
Moskau, Russland


The activity aims to create strong ties among participating coordinators of European Solidarity Corps as well as to learn about volunteering realities in Russia. The concept of the activity is built on idea of experiential, adventure learning.

The seminar will start in Moscow, but major part will be held during a Trans-Siberian train ride from Moscow to Novosibirsk (2 days and 2 nights), with the proper working sessions on board as well as visits to organisations and meetings with local communities in Novosibirsk, Achinsk and Krasnoyarsk. Additionally, for interested coordinators, we will organise a weekend trip to an eco-village in the taiga, accredited for the European Solidarity Corps (20-21 June).

CORONAVIRUS: please note that the dates of the seminar might change. After the group is recruited (beginning of May), we will check the situation and make final decision, if to keep the June dates or move the seminar to autumn. Hopefully by beginning of May the situation with coronavirus is much better and foreseeable.


  • to get to know each other personally and professionally;
  • to build trust and partnership among participating organisations holding ESC quality label;
  • to deepen understanding of quality in international volunteering in ESC;
  • to learn about reality of volunteering organisations in Russia;
  • to foster networking among participants and create space for projects' building;

The programme will be built on experiential learning, adventure and outdoor methodology, allowing participants on one hand to meet local organisations and discover their realities and on the other hand to discuss quality elements of cooperation within European Solidarity Corps. The whole experience will be enhanced by networking and partnership building sessions to allow new project ideas to emerge. Through out the process participants will be able to learn and experience the intercultural reality of the region. This activity is built upon the experience that our institutions gained during similar events using river boat cruises "Between Ladoga and Onega" and “Volga Experience” in Russia (2012-13) as well as during train travel seminar "Train Adventure" in Ukraine (2014) and during outdoor seminar "From Sea to Mountains" also in Ukraine (2015) as well as the "Argonautika" sea seminar in western Georgia (2016) and "The colour of pomegranate" seminar in Armenia (2017).
