Following the meetings for leaders and companions, the World Council on Training and New Generations invited friends and volunteers from Emmaus groups in Europe to discuss and exchange practices at a work and training seminar in Aland (Finland).
This first training course for Emmaus Europe friends and volunteers brought together 13 participants. Although the group was small, it quickly became close-knit and reflected on the Emmaus values and took part in the Åland group’s work. A sale to support international solidarity rounded off this intense and sociable week. The accommodation and training venue was also conductive to the kind of informal contact that reinforces links. There were two components to the course: training and practical work with Emmaus Åland.
