Let me inform you that first time in our project a Focus group meeting was held in Gödöllő by our project partner, the Diversity Foundation. These events are important to provide systematic feedback throughout the project about the relevance and applicability of the intellectual outputs to key stakeholder groups, as well as a means of communicating the progression and the results of the project. The members of the focus group are professional and civil stakeholders. This 1st focus group meeting was focused on the farm management experiences with disabled and/or disadvantaged people. Stakeholders who took part are:
Értelmi Sérültek Gyöngyház Egyesülete
Miskolci Autista Alapítvány
Nefelejcs Értelmi Fogyatékosok Napközi Otthona
Farm Alapú Nevelésért Egyesület
Tiszasas Község Önkormányzata
Szociális Farm Szövetség
In January we posted our first project newsletter and successfully spreaded out via our Hungarian relations. If we couldn't reach you, please read it via this channel. Enjoy!
As we promised we are back and let you know some details about the kick-off meeting, which was successfully completed at the end of November. As it was expected, all the participants were really excited about the idea to take part in this inspiring project, and they were looking forward to the project partners presentations. We tried in practice the method to be taken from the English project partner (Ruskin Mill Trust) and explored the spirit of the place with the help of our host partners (WWOOF Hungary and the Eco Small Community of Bercelszeg) and the local patron Kinga Petro de Chalendar. If you are interested in the details please have a look at the meeting minutes and the attached photos.
Our project period is 1st September 2017 - 10th August 2020. During this period, several events will colorize our workdays, first of all on 26-29th November 2017 we arrange our kick-off meeting in Bercel, Hungary. We are all waiting for this event with excitement, some of us will meet with each other at the first time, will change experiences and share our ideas about the work together in a team.
We will come back soon and let you know what happened at the meeting.
