Double Meeting in Istanbul – Part 2


Double Meeting in Istanbul – Part 2

Istanbul, March 26th. The first day of the 2nd Management meeting has been used to carry out several restricted meetings, in order to discuss and solve more effectively some issues did not need to be discussed in the plenary session. Namely, the following sessions have been carried out:

  • Meeting of the Italian team to coordinate next actions on the territory of Sardinia.
  • Meeting between ZSI/Ciofs-FP/IVAL on the definition of workshops contents: there will be 4 workshops for each student involved in the intervention.
  • Meeting between Caritas, ZSI, Ciofs-FP on the Intervention coordination. Caritas will be the coordinator of this part of the project and there will be specific training session for the operators.

The second day started with the presentation of feedbacks on activities and outputs realized in the different work packages of the project. Each responsible for work package presented the activities, outputs achieved and the timing for future actions.
After this part, all the partners planned the next steps. These are the most relevant:

  • Selection of the operators. We decided to call them “JumpOs”, from the project’s name, and to have 4 JumpOs for each country. There will be a call for selection that explicitly mentions the skills and competences required.
  • The training of trainers will be organized by Caritas: there will be local meetings and, if possible, a transnational meeting.
  • The communication plan includes the creation of some videos: Finis Terrae presented a document on how they can be made locally.

During the meeting we also had a webinar with Erik Ballhausen, Task Manager of EACEA. After the presentations of all the participants, Massimo Peron (CIOFS-FP) and Juliet Tschank (ZSI) illustrated respectively the Logic Model of Intervention and the Evaluation design. The discussion focused on some of the most important topics that are being/have to be considered during implementation: ethical issues and communication protocols, agreements with schools, identification/selection of JumpOs, function and importance of the exploitation.
