29 people from 5 different nations lived, worked, learnt, ate and slept together for 3 weeks, 9 days of which were dedicated to sailing on a boat departing from the Baltic sea and navigating to Danemark and Sweden.

Turkish, Italian, Syrian, German, French and Polish people were all united to achieve common goals, no matter which nationality, religion or beliefs they represented.

After this amazing experience, Kompass wants to thank every participant in the project. A special thanks goes to Ehrenamt foundation for supporting us and to Radio Lohmo that interviewed some of the participants and reported our adventure. Of course, everything was possible thanks to the Erasmus+ Programme.. so thank you European Union!!! :-)

Here is the the interview from Lohro (Rostock radio) in German:


And here below is a small description on how the project developed:

The first 10 days of the project took part in Wiepkenhagen, a small village in the countryside, 41 km away from Rostock and 12 km away from the Baltic Sea.

During first part the main aim was to deepen the knowledge about ecological and environmental sustainability, especially about maritime pollution and how to prevent it. Participant learnt the concept of Cradle to Cradle as a sustainable way to reduce waste on a big scale. They were participating actively to the learning sessions, discussing topics in groups and expressing their points of view.

They were encouraged to „think green“ and to reduce waste in the house.  Moreover, another important aim was to build a strong team spirit: living, cooking and cleaning together, playing team building games were extremely important to grow as a team.

This place sourrounded by trees and green fields and the warm summer days encouraged the participants to play some open air games, sport activities and excursions to the sea. Living for 10 days in the countryside was extremely relaxing and gave people great vibes, making them ready for the sailing part.

The second part of the project took place on the sailing boat, were participants were divided up into mixed groups and became trainees under the control of the crew and the rules on board.

Of the sailing itself, the participants were on board and each one of them had certain tasks and responsibilities to keep the boat on track – even at night.


They sailed  from Rostock and the Baltic Sea to Denmark, Sweden and the North Sea.


The three last days were again in Wiepkenhagen about the evaluation of the project, where the participants could share their impressions and improvements.

After the project. they felt they have learnt a lot more about ecology and how to avoid waste in everyday life. They have also became responsible team workers, know how to communicate and express their minds in a better way.

They will never forget this unique adventure!
