The final partner meeting of the “Start the change!” project held in Zagreb
The day after our final conference, we also held the final partner meeting. Representatives of partner organizations MCEC (North Macedonia), INOVA+ (Portugal), SIRIUS Network and NEPC and the FFE in the role of coordinator, met in the Forum’s office in Zagreb to share impressions from the conference and recently held activities in all three countries, as well as to plan the implementation of activities in the last phase of the project.
It is precisely in this last phase that we look back on what has been achieved and consider ways to best use the results of the project. The external evaluator also helps us in this, who guided us in the second part of the meeting through the self-evaluation process in several steps. The representatives of the partner organizations expressed great satisfaction with the work in the aforementioned consortium.
We are especially proud of the resilience we built together by adapting and managing to find ways to work with educators and schools during the pandemic that lasted for most of the project. Despite the many difficulties that arose from the pandemic, we are successfully bringing the project to an end and we are proud of the numerous results – empowered individuals, raised awareness of the importance of the student voice and their participation, and all of this is presented through a large number of publications.
The implementation of the planned project activities went quiet smoothly even though we faced big challenges like the COVID-19 along this process. All of the partners were dedicated and we had very nice and good cooperation.
