In the end we will present one show of traditional sports. Videos and promotional materials will be also made for multiplying and dissemination. Starting with energizers, ice breaking, team building, presentation of YiA to presentation of countries, we will create IC spirit and pleasant learning experience for participants; reflect on different cultural expressions, and create a bridge between cultures for a better mutual comprehension.
