Consorzio ONG Piemontesi (COP), in collaboration with the University of Craiova, organised an additional start-up seminar for the second-round grantees selected within the sub-granting action of the Mindchangers Project in Dolj County. The seminar, which took place on Zoom on January, 24th, 2023, was coordinated by Andrea Micconi from COP and was aimed at introducing the new granteed projects, creating communication channels with the action coordinators and giving important information on how to successfully implement them.
The participants, Iulian Tănase, from Junior Chamber International Craiova Association (Project CLEANUP CRAIOVA), Claudia Ivașcu from CEDRU – Center of Excellence for Human Resources Development (Project ECO SHADES) and Camelia Neagoe from Active YOUrope Association (Project G.A.I.A. – Green Action Involvement Awareness) introduced themselves and their associations, as well as their granted projects. They also had the chance to interact with the former grantees in Dolj County from the first round of the call for proposals (https://www.mindchangers.eu/dolj-county/) asking them for suggestions, based on their experience in 2022 with Mindchangers Project.
Moreover, Alina Resceanu (University of Craiova), delivered a presentation of the research coordinated by Monica Tilea (University of Craiova) and the Practical Guide on Youth Engagement on the 2030 Agenda for the local authorities and civil society organisations.
