Implementation meeting in Zagreb, Croatia
The third international meeting of E-makers, a project co-funded by the European Commission within the Erasmus+ program, was held in Zagreb, Croatia, on the 29th and 30th of March. Impact Hub was the host partner of the meeting. XUL Foundation, SYDG, TDM 2000 International, and Cives Mundi attended the meeting.
This working meeting was held to follow up on the actions carried out so far and to discuss new tasks to be carried out. Thus, the meeting focused on talking about the results of the already concluded project such as the "Non-formal learning toolkit for digital social entrepreneurship produced for youth workers" and the "Digitalisation manual" to improve the advanced digital skills of youth workers. During the working session, it was agreed to make some improvements to have more harmony between the two works and to make the translation of each result.
In addition, the virtual training that will take place on 26,27, and 28 April was also discussed, which will be aimed at youth workers to put the manual into practice and offer them the countless digital tools that can be used when creating a social enterprise. Our partner EU&PRO will be in charge of carrying out this free training.
Among other issues, the importance of disseminating the results was also discussed to make all the material already produced known through social networks, which will be very useful for youth workers and entrepreneurs who want to create a company with environmental values and with a digital base or who already have a company and want to digitize it.
On the other hand, a large part of the meeting was based on talking about the third act to be developed: The Virtual Board Game, which led the partners to discuss for quite a long time, brainstorming ideas to improve the proposal presented by SYDG.
We can conclude that it was a very productive meeting where different aspects to improve the project were put on the table but, at the same time, the improvements made since the beginning were praised, as communication, teamwork, and trust of the partners have been progressing well.
