Country of origin: Turkey
Date started with Soliya: 2018
Education and field of work: I've been actively involved in European exchange and cooperation projects as an expert and trainer for ten years. I've volunteered with the European Voluntary Service in Sweden, and worked at the Council of Europe headquarters in Strasbourg and programme office in Ankara. I now manage higher education international projects. I'm interested in developing trainings for young people using non-formal education methods and encouraging them to discover different cultures.
What about Soliya inspires/motivates you to be involved? The opportunity to foster dialogue in an intercultural setting on interesting topics.
What can you be found doing when not working/facilitating/training? Studying for my PhD on European Studies.
