The yMIND project which is coordinated by Action Synergy organized its second transnational meeting between 9th and 12th of May 2017 in Sofia. Hosted by the Bulgarian partner Health and Social Develoment Foundation (HESED) the meeting marked a milestone in the preparation for testing of the selected two good-practice models aiming to improve social inclusion of young disadvantaged learners through education.
When i found out about the StartUpcycling project i got really excited! I spent a lot of hours of a Sunday morning to fill up the application. After that, I was praying for a positive response from the Action Synergy team. Finally, after some days I got the happy news. Officially, I would be one of the 25+ people, from 7 different countries, gathering for the first time in Berlin in order to StartUpcycling!
My experience in the StartUpcycling project can be described as an unexpected and unique chance to be involved in an inspiring field, with well-informed participants coming from around the world, for a remarkable purpose.
My internship experience in Action Synergy was absolutely amazing. I want to tell you more about it. These three months have been rich of pleasant surprises. When I attended my master degree in EU project management I was expecting to work soon with Erasmus+ combining my recent professional path with my great passion for education and social issues. I really didn’t expect to do it in Greece thanks to an other Erasmus+ project.
The second meeting of From Peer to Peer took place in Budapest last week and it was hosted by Wesley János School. The project is a European Erasmus + project that aims to contribute to a better education from the point of view of social inclusion, combating discrimination, segregation and bullying. In this sense, it aims to provide support and tools to schools that address situations of bullying and discrimination, affecting the proper growth and development of students, with the aim of achieving more inclusive educational processes, generated from the base and the people involved in phenomena as the main protagonists.
