Despite its end, thanks to the results produced (and available for free on the project website) PIECE project still has the potential to impact not only existing community workers and communities, but also to help people create community spaces and activities.
Yet, how partners have been able to achieve this result? Let’s see the latest step undertaken
On September 16th, 2022, the PIECE’s partners have met in Seville for the Final Transnational Meeting. On this occasion, the consortium had the change to discuss the development of the project’s activities and results, exchanging views on the situation in their respective home countries and talking together about the finalisation of intellectual outputs. This event has set the tone for the finalization of the activities and the end the project in the most positive way.
Hence, during the final two months all the partners have been busy in the organization of multiplier events, piloting actions and dissemination activities. Moreover, in this last period all the Intellectual Outputs (IOs) have been completed and translated in all partners’ languages.
“Not just a project: thanks to PIECE I have been able to exchange with other community workers from other countries, thus improving my skills”
Many great achievements have been accomplished. The people who took part in the project and benefited from the IOs of the project not only have improved their skills and employability; but also they have fostered the latter as well the degree social inclusion of the people they have trained. Furthermore, the project provoked a positive spillover effect, involving participants into activities and networking moments, thus creating a virtuous circle of empowerment. “Not just a project: thanks to PIECE I have been able to exchange with other community workers from other countries, thus improving my skills” said a participant at the end of a training.
Overall, partners are proud of the achievements, and glad to have shared with many people knowledge, best practices and questions related to the world of community workers, promotion of active and constructive dialogue on the challenges of community life and local engagement.
