As the first step in the project we have organised a kickoff meeting, which was held in Peja, Kosovo, between February 7th and 9th. During the meeting the partners formed a steering committee, prepared partnership agreements and discussed all key aspects of the project implementation, evaluation and the dissemination of information and results. We defined the preliminary selection criteria of mobility participants, the content of each mobility activity, the development process of the toolkit, evaluation procedures, research and good practice identification approaches, and an outline of the toolkit. We also visited local good practices and initiatives dealing with young people.
To increase the reach of promotional activities, increase the recognition of the project and the Erasmus+ programme, and to establish a positive project brand in Kosovo and also in the wider region, we organized a press conference (insert link to article titled UCNE first press conference), a cultural event (insert link to article titled Gipsy Groove Concert) and the presentation of the project to local dignitaries, His Excellency Bojan Bertoncelj, Slovenian Ambassador to Kosovo, and His Excellency Phillip S. Kosnett, U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo.
The event took place on February 6th, 2020 in Peja, Kosovo.
