Mar 18, 2022

Migration Linked project:

From the 2nd to the 4th of March ALDA hosted the launch event of the project SHAPE – SHaring Actions for Participation and Empowerment of migrant communities and LAs. The meeting was organised by ALDA, as project coordinator, with the support of We World, co-leader.

The aim of the meeting was to set up the chrono-programme of the project, defining the steps in the short and medium term and the role and responsibilities of each partner.

The first day focused on the presentation of the consortium, and of the project partners, who shared the mission of their organisations, the project activities in which they are involved and the experiences that will contribute to bring added value to SHAPE.

The second day started with a financial session dedicated to the setting up of reporting rules, procedures and deadlines and presentation of the necessary forms, by ALDA. Afterwards, a round table took place where all the different tasks were presented in terms of: actions, deadlines, expected results and partners involved.

The aim of the meeting was to set up the chrono-programme of the SHAPE project

In the afternoon it was dedicated to work in groups, through working tables proportioned to the number of tasks.  There were 2 rounds of one hour each and then a moment of sharing what emerged in each group. Each group discussed the task and related activities, establishing roles and responsibilities of each partner; identifying possible critical issues and solutions; implementation strategies; next steps.

This exercise allowed to clarify the project actions, deadlines and expected results. But, above all, it was possible to create synergies between the partners and team spirit, strengthening their involvement.

Finally, on the last day WeWorld presented the communication activities of the project and a possible communication and dissemination strategy.

The partners are already discussing the visual identity of the project, claim and logo. In the coming months the website will be published.

The meeting took place in hybrid form Artemissizio (HU) and the Italian partners such as CONNGI and WEWorld participated in presence. The rest participated online due to covid and Ukraine situation.
