The event, titled “What does the European Union deal with?”, was organised by the municipality of Ivančna Gorica, in cooperation with AGORA CE, and saw the involvement of more than 60 participants from more than 10 countries.

The first day, partners of the project gathered to discuss the awareness of the EU major domains of actions in their countries and the strengths and weaknesses of EU key policies set up and ways to foster participation in the upcoming European Parliament elections.

On the second day, during an “EU Market” the participants got to visit a weekly fair in Ivančna Gorica to discover more about Slovenian local products supported by the EU and the different opportunities offered by EU key policies.

There, Mr Dušan Strnad, mayor of Ivančna Gorica, and Mr Tomaž Smole, vice-mayor of Ivančna Gorica, welcomed the international participants and Ms Pavla Bednáriková, project manager at AGORA CE, introduced the CROSS OVER project. Then, Ms Patricija Šulin and Mr Milan Zver, Members of the European Parliament, presented the importance to vote in the European elections to have an impact not only at the European level but also in your local community.

Climate change adaptation: listen to LIFE METRO ADAPT partners!

We take for granted the existence of climate changes, leaving aside the debates on how much these depend on mankind and anthropogenic factors or on natural cycles.
The question is then: how does a city adapt to them? En outre what tools does a municipality have to avoid economic, human and environmental damages? And also, more specifically, what can an integrated water service operator do?
In Milan, last March, Lombardy Foundation for the EnvironmentAmbienteItalia, la Ville métropolitaine de MilanCAP Holdinget Legambiente Lombardia talked about it in the framework of LIFE METRO ADAPT project and the hospitality of Fa’ la cosa giusta! fair.

First training of the "MIND INCLUSION 2.0" project held in Spain!

The first training of the “MIND INCLUSION 2.0” project held in Valladolid in Spain ended on Friday.

14 educators and technician partners of the project had the opportunity to discuss and learn about the use of participatory methodologies to co-create an app to facilitate the connection of intellectual disable people with their community. The aim of this training was to acquire skills and identify the strategies to run in an effective and truly inclusive way the Local Action Groups, the special space where educators and final users will co-create the app.

The concepts and activities that the participants explored were several and very innovative. The participants developed strategies and common procedures to create and consolidate the Local Action Groups creation. They got acquainted with the concepts at the base of the project, such as agile methodology, cognitive accessibility and inclusive settings. Some design-thinking tools were introduced to support participants understanding, such as the exercise of creating “personas” or “proto-personas” to support focus on user needs, contextual factors and people’s motivations (a concrete life scenario of a third person to maintain neutrality of discussions). Some information regarding the potential difficulties for planning the participatory sessions and communication challenges that may arise with the end-users during the LAG were also shared.

The new methodologies that were created and explored during the 3 days will turn into action very soon. Besides being presented at the International Conference on Innovation, Documentation and Education (INNODOCT/19) taking place on November 2019 in Valencia, Spain, the methodologies will be soon applied in the process of co-creation of the online platform that will allow intellectual disable people to review the initiatives, events and activities of their communities.
