Another project carried out by our institute took place on August 11 – August 15, 2020.
The topic of the planned preparatory visit to Iceland was the professional development of the staff, as part of which the organization from Mosfellsbær in Iceland shared with us its experience and new training techniques.
The initiative came to result that they come to fruition thanks to the co-financing of a two-month project (the projects runs lasts from 09.07.2020 to 08.09.2020. which we received from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway as a part of the EEA and Norway Grants. The effect of preparatory visit was a live meeting between representatives of the Institute of Regional Cooperation and the representatives of the newly met partner organization from Iceland – Play to Learn More.
The main purpose of the visit was to prepare effective workshops for people working with children and youth, at risk of social exclusion. Thanks to the trainings, the staff will raise its qualifications and learn about new, innovative work tools.
The preparatory visit gave the institute has a chance clarification, detail and plan our future joint project under the Education Program.
We hope that the visit to Iceland will result in establishing a long-term fruitful cooperation :)
