Fourth meeting online

The fourth project meeting was held online on January 25 and 26, 2021, due to measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting aimed to evaluate the implementation of SL training for youth workers, which was implemented in partner countries, present training reports based on feedback from training participants, and finalize the output of the IO1 project. Other goals were the finalization of results IO2 and IO3 and work on production IO4 and the evaluation of the project's progress so far and the plan for the next period.

In the first part of the meeting, the coordinator presented the program of the meeting, and the partners agreed on it. The partners reflected on the status of the project implementation and whether it is necessary to request an extension of its performance. They decided that the project, despite obstacles in the implementation of SL projects associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, would not be extended and that the funds from international meetings could be used for other purposes by mutual agreement of the partners.

The project partners presented experiences and outputs from the implementation of training in individual countries (reports from the implementation of training and presentations are available). The partners subsequently agreed on changes in the output of IO1, specifically on adding a version of activities and tools in the online environment or notes on individual actions. Some parts of the IO2 and IO3 outputs have also been modified based on feedback. Subsequently, the participants agreed on the dates of changes in the final version and sent the production for assessment.

The partners presented cooperating subjects in implementing SL projects in individual countries and agreed on the dates and number of people who should be involved in testing the outputs, i.e. to the realization of SL projects. The project coordinator reviewed with the partners the final version of the documentation, which was created to test outputs and monitor the project's results and impact. The partners went through the IO2 and IO3 outputs in detail divided the tasks for the finalization of the outputs, agreed on the adjustment, deadlines and evaluation of the outputs.

In the next part of the meeting, the partners devoted themselves to the preparation of the output of IO4. This output was modified based on the partners' and the National Agency's approval. For Vobis, as the output coordinator, she prepared a presentation about the entire output and the form of its parts. At the same time, the partners agreed on the preparation of stories from the realization of SL projects during the implementation of the EDUVOL project.

At the end of the meeting, the financial manager of the project addressed the financial aspects of project implementation, and the partners agreed to prepare an interim report on the project.
