BRAVO recently had the opportinty of hosting the second transnational meeting for the „Ahead“ project. The meeting, held on June 20, brought together four partner organizations dedicated to advancing the objectives of the project.
One of the primary purposes of the meeting was to discuss the key activities carried out thus far in the project. Each partner had the opportunity to showcase their contributions, highlighting the progress made in their respective countries.
Furthermore, the meeting served as opportunity to provide the latest implementation news from each country and for every Work Package (WP). The partners took the opportunity to update one another on the most recent developments, sharing insights and strategies that proved successful in their local contexts. This exchange of information ensured that all partners remained informed about the project’s progress and could learn from one another’s experiences.
A crucial aspect of the transnational meeting was the analysis of the evolution of AHEAD’s WP activities within each partner country. Looking ahead, the meeting served for designing the action plan for the upcoming summer and the beginning of autumn in 2023. The partner worked together to create a detailed and comprehensive calendar of national and international activities.
Through collaboration and shared expertise, the project aims to create positive change in education and cultural exchange. The second transnational meeting served as a oppotunity to the commitment and dedication of all partners involved. It reinforced the importance of international cooperation and highlighted the power of collective action in achieving common goals against hate speech.
