Antonio García Cazorla (Spain/NGO) and Adriano Difronzo (Italy/NGO)

For a few years Antonio García Cazorla has been thinking about the possibility of creating an association that works for equality and social activism locally and internationally.

During the last year he discovered the opportunity that Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs offered through an Erasmus + mobility in which he took part. He saw it as an opportunity to take the last step to bring this project to reality. Weiterlesen …

Nina Fortuna (Slovenia/Web Design) and Magid Issar Motamedian (Spain/Web Design)

Nina Fortuna: “I already knew a lot about graphic design and web design. What I learned during the stay abroad is how to build concepts for design and how to present concepts to potential clients.
