What is Camp Democracy for me?, by Ivi Karra

It’ s the people. I still remember the first time landing in Rhodes’ airport and wondering what  would happen during the camp. Right now, already being in Sweden, I still feel I made the right decision when applying for this project. It’ s impressive how people, coming from all over Europe with so much different personalities, beliefs and stories, can create a strong team like ours! You cannot understand it, if you haven’t experienced it. Imagination, acceptance, openmindness, positive thinking and optimism may describe somehow our way of interaction. All these, in addition with travelling have given us the chance to see the world from another perspective , and finally what I came to realise is that what it matters .
