07 Oct Well Done Erasmus+ Participants
The CRC Erasmus+ Committee would like to thank everyone for all the fabulous contributions in making this event a great success.
The morning session got off to a flying start with an introduction from Noel Carroll and a presentation from Karen Kieran, who talked about her own experience of living through the current pandemic.
Special thanks to Colm Quearney and the many volunteers from Fighting Words who did an excellent job at supporting us with our character stories during the Zoom breakout rooms.
It was truly wonderful to hear how each of the stories were developed in such a short space of time. So well done to everyone for playing their part in achieving this. In the coming days, we will gather the stories and publish them to this site. So watch this space!
Maria-Elena got the ball rolling for the afternoon session. She challenged us to think outside of the box when dealing with Human Rights issues.
The various scenarios that we shared made everyone think twice about jumping to a conclusion too quickly. It certainly got the debate going as there were no shortage of engagement from the Erasmus+ participants. It highlighted the importance of respecting others and also knowing what our rights are.
Ross Ahern delivered a very honest and powerful closing speech that he prepared himself. He talked about what he thought of 2020 so far and ended by saying that we can all work together and get through this as we learn to live with this virus.
I really had a great experience from a productive Zoom. I enjoyed doing the video so that people know your voice will be heard. We need to speak more and I will never stop, I keep going all the way. Great class, lovely seeing everyone come together and saying what they had to say. Well done !
I really enjoyed doing the Erasmus+ because it was good fun doing the stories about our characters. Noel spoke very well at the start. I worked on Harry's Story with Anna and Inram from Frighting Words.
I had a great time. Very productive Zoom and great to see everyone coming together.
Really satisfied with how the day went from start to finish. I was particularly impressed with the high level of engagement and maturity that participants demonstrated whilst online.
