A Wide Range of Cultural and Educational Events Takes Place in the Cities of Slovenia as Part of the EU Project, Moj Project
In May 2018, within the framework of the EU Project, Moj Project, 40 events were held around the country with the participation of more than 3,000 people. The events took place in Ajdovščina, Brežice, Celje, Črnomlje, Grosuplje, Koper, Krško, Ljubljana, Logatec, Maribor, Martjanci, Metlika, Nova Gorica, Pivka, Planica, Postojna, Radlje ob Dravi, Tolmin, Trbovlje, Velenje, Vrhnika and Žalec.
The events had a rich and varied programme. In particular, the participants were pleased with the fascinating creative workshops, interactive exhibitions, puppet shows, hikes, sports games, and other entertaining and educational activities. Fans of creative activities could take part in the work of numerous workshops and try their hand at clay modelling, sewing, making soap, cooking vegetarian dishes, making postcards and photo albums.
The youngest participants of the events studied the art of improvisation to create their own musical fairy tales, listened to stories from the life of animals, watched the performance of the Fajn Theatre, searched for their ideal future profession with the costumed actor Trkajem, investigated a detective story in Ljubljana, learned to say hello in Indian, got acquainted with the way they lived in the times of Ivan Cankar, played sports games, and tasted pancakes. The educational part of the programme included lectures on renewable energy sources, reduction of household waste in everyday life, tourism, materials of the future with the preparation of recommendations for the economic sphere. The youth dealt with education and career. Fans of recreation and history went on a spring hike in Pivka, during which they could meet Martin Krpan and forge a horseshoe for luck.
Within the framework of the EU Project, Moj Project programme, more than 6,000 events have been held in Slovenia over the past 15 years with a combined budget of more than 3 billion euros. Open tendering procedures, programmes and other investment projects make it possible to encourage innovation, creativity, realize business ideas, invest in knowledge and education throughout life, and open new jobs. As the organisers emphasize, this gives broad opportunities for the young people looking for their first job and the adults willing to adapt their knowledge and skills to the actual needs of the labour market and developing technologies.
