EMPROVE – Partner Meeting in Göttingen

The EMPROVE team is currently in Germany (April 2018), reviewing the feedback from testing the EMPROVE innovative platform in six EU countries … the official public launch of the platform is approaching!
The platform offers various missions to support women survivors of domestic violence to empower them by supporting them in reflecting on their strenghts and values. The platform is based on the theory of gamification and uses gamified elements aimed to engage the DV survivors in a long-term journey of empowerment. The platform combines solving different online or live missions and achievements, in addition to the face-to-face sessions with a counsellor, using also the power of the own self-confidence.
If you want to try out the platform, please contact the EMPROVE team at info@bupnet.de

EMPROVE – Partner meeting in Vienna

During our partner meeting in Vienna in May 2017 we brainstormed all relevant learning topics that should be part of our training addressing survivors of domestic violence who have left their violent partnership and who want to lead an independant life.

Main topics will be related to topics such as:

  • empowerment,
  • self-reflection on own strenghts and values,
  • emotional intelligence,
  • personal mindset,
  • job search and job insertion,
  • communication

EELLSS partner meeting in Pisa

In May the EELLSS partners met in Pisa. The main aim was to exchange on the state of affairs in the ongoing learning projects in the partners schools and on drafting the programme for the final event that will take place on 05./06.10.2017 in Kassel.
It was great to hear that the soil-related learning projects have brought up new ideas and initiated activities that would not have taken place without the project!

Despite all the efforts of the team … the tower is still leaning!

EELLSS – partner meeting in Tilburg

EELLSS partners held their next meeting in Tilburg, Netherlands. During the meeting, current developments and challenges in the field of soil science research were discussed. Partners presented their expertise and ideas  on how to generate different didactical frameworks on soil science case studies.

After the meeting, a short excursion to Regte Heide was organised. The Regte Heide, a natural area, offers different soil profiles and thus creates different opportunities for measures and analysis. During the excursion soil profiles were taken and the different layers were discussed.

VALLEY partner meeting in Göttingen

logo_valley_hell_300dpiIn early May the VALLEY (Validation System in Lifelong Learning Experiences of Youth Volunteering) partners came together in Göttingen to set up the plan for putting the goals of VALLEY into practice. The first steps focus on assessing the field of volunteering opportunities for youths and the practices in terms of validation of competences that young people acquire during their volunteering experiences. For this purpose an online survey will be launched in the middle of June that addresses young volunteers as well as volunteering organisations to ask for their experieIMG_0839nces and needs. The survey is backed by an extensive internet research to deepen the findings. Based on these research results the VALLEY team will customise the offers that are to be developed in the coming two years.
