From 24.03.2021 to 26.03.2021 another project implemented by our Institute took place. The project Preparatory visit no. FWD/20/WP/0015 benefits from a grant of EUR 2 100,00 received from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA funds. The aim of the project is to establish long-term cooperation and to prepare and plan a joint project, which we have submitted to the Education Programme in Component I of the Professional Staff Development sector, intensive training activity in the April 2021 call. The preparatory visit was also aimed at exchanging good practices and showing the project coordinators from Poland the activities of the county office and the way of working. Moreover, it was also an opportunity to develop project documents and meet people who work on a daily basis with children as part of a health promotion programme developed by a team of experts from Nordland. During these days we met (unfortunately only online) with representatives of Nordland County Council from Norway responsible for development and implementation of health promotion programme in schools, in Nordland region and promoting outdoor learning and living/being outdoors (frilufsliv). During the conversation we discussed the assumptions of future cooperation, the concept and schedule of future training for teachers and people working with children and young people. Before the meeting we had developed initial assumptions of our project, which were detailed and discussed during the preparatory visit. We hope that our findings will result in a grant to deliver the training in April 2022.
The Preparatory Visit was carried out within the framework of the Education Programme thanks to the support of the Donor States: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through EEA and Norway Grants.
