During the study visit, the participants of the study visit visited the users of the service Dom Sentivo, Ilidža in Sarajevo as well as the schools Gymnasium Mostar and Gymnasium Mostar 2 that implemented Service-Learning projects. The students from schools shared with the participants a presentation of their practices which were discussed with participants, participants exchanged experiences, identified similarities and differences in approaches used in their countries, but also received new ideas and inspiration for application in their work.
