WYRED Florence

Between 13 and 15 November 2017, the consortium partners participated in the third WYRED project meeting, hosted in the Oxfam Italia premises in Florence.

The meeting was not just essential to assess the progress made so far and share the diverse experiences and expectations pooled during the first cycle of implementation, but it also proved crucial to define the next steps to be made.

The need to define new strategies to engage more stakeholders and young people in the project activities was, in a way, the core of the meeting; many other ideas were also shared, most of them trying to resolve the main concerns arisen during the implementation of the first phase.

The efforts and discussions made over the three days definitely paid off: the consortium partners succeeded in solving most of the issues concerning the accessibility to the online platform, redesign the Delphi from scratch, and scheduled several national and international events to promote the Project. Online forums on topics of current and global interest have also been set up: they will be focusing, at least at this initial stage, on environmental pollution, tolerance and migration, gender-based discrimination and violence, and be led by the young participants to the WYRED Project.

Stay tuned to receive further information about the future of WYRED!
