Seminars organized in all partner countries for stakeholders, professionals and volunteers as well as children to present and demonstrate the board games, comic books and videos.

Originally WelComm partners had planned to hold a final conference in September in Rotterdam but as this was not possible to happen due to the corona virus a live event took place via Facebook during the ErasmusDays 2020.

Children aged 7-9 have tried the Welcomm 2 board game for Transylvania, which provided a totally new learning approach to the Romanian language learning in comparison to what they are used to. They enjoyed it a lot, they had awakened family visits’ memories, while in some cases they gained new knowledge about the Romanian culture and their surroundings.
Our partners from Musee des Enfants organised a very exciting workshop and let the children draw comic books based on the legends about Manneke Pis.
It was a hard-working day for our young participants in the comic books workshop! They created interesting stories using three characters from Dutch urban legends – Holle Bolle Gijs, de Witte Wieven and de Bokkerijders. The best drawing will be used later to produce the Dutch comic book.
The workshop was held on 2nd October in Rotterdam.
