Learning activity in Sweden.

In January 2016 it was finally time to hold the learning activity in Sweden. It was originally planned for January 2015, but moved due to the delay of the start of our project. But on the 11th of January all our partners finally arrived. We had a full schedule for our 5 working days, the goal was to show our guests a winter Sweden and the activities that we do outdoor during winter. We certainly got to show a winter Sweden, the weather was so cold! During the visit we got to try winter sports like skating, curling and skiing. We visited Vetenskapens hus (House of science) to learn more about DNA. We learned more about love in different species at Skansen (an outdoor museum in Stockholm). We saw Milles artwork at Milles Museum at Lidingö. There was also a workshop on waters as a starter for all countries for our joined project on Sustainable Waters. The meeting in Sweden was full with sport activities and our partners left us to go to warmer weather!
