After the break we write down our personal Fears and expectations about the project on paper and we make some “Family Rules” together. At 1 PM we had lunchtime. After the lunch we did an energizer to wake op from snooze mode again. After lunch, till dinner time, we make our envelopes for the secret friend game.

We had also a little break somewhere between these sessions.

We stay for a while talking and eating with each other and slowly going to see our beds. To get enough rest so we can start all fresh tomorrow at a new and wonderful day in Germany.
Today we started with getting information about different kind of garbage and how many of that is wasted. We did that in different groups. The different kind of garbage that get waste and how many impacts this have on the environment. We created with our country groups a presentation about the waste of garbage in our own country, what the impact is in the environment and the solutions. We talked, researched and even debated about the use of packaging products and the impact on the environment. Also, we did a couple of really nice energizers. *Zip*Boing*Zap*
