The IEICS Project kick-off meeting took place from November 8-9, 2017, with representatives from all five participant countries in attendance. The aim of this meeting was to establish effective cooperation between participants, to gather information vital to achieving project goals, and to create an action plan for going forward.
Over the course of these two days, we were able to identify essential project tasks and to define primary timelines for accomplishing these. Furthermore, we discussed potential activities for intergenerational programming and possible avenues of cooperation between countries participating in the project.
During this time, we also had the chance to visit a senior home in the neighbourhood of Haje (Prague) to see an intergenerational programme in action, and, perhaps most importantly, we were able to get know each other a little better and to define a common vision, which we now happily work toward together.
