Grey skies does not stop SK4YS

The last SK4YS project meeting was planned to be hosted by EUSA in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana on March 23, 2020, but because of the current COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak, the live meeting was postponed, and the project partners met online.

During the meeting, the participants discussed the development of a handbook, which will help organisations and individuals in running projects which help participants gain skills, with a special focus on a ones that do it through sport. The knowledge achieved through it should impact employability and education level of those who attended it. The first part of a handbook will focus mostly on how the project should look like, what kind of topics should be covered, potential sources of funding and about project management. The second part will showcase 10 good practice examples of fruitful projects in this field, identifying the target groups, challenges, lessons learned and providing some history of each project.

The focus of partners during a meeting was not only the content, but even more how to make this data user friendly, as well as how to best share other examples of similar projects which were identified in the previous phases of the project. The last topic on the agenda focused on the action plan and next meetings. EUSA was represented at the meeting by its Communications and Projects Manager Mr Andrej Pisl and European Solidarity Corps Volunteer Mr Tomasz Olszewski.
