2nd Transnational Project Meeting in Lisbon (Portugal)
Be Smart – Strategic Partnership for Digitally Excluded (SPADE) is an international project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The main aim of this project is to promote equality and inclusion by improving the digital skills of older adults and younger people with poor digital skills.
During the 2nd transnational meeting, in Lisbon, on the 13th of February 2018, the partnership discussed the structural plan for the workshops that will be developed throughout the project.
It was agreed that the workshops will be called “Digital Discoveries in (city name)” with the name of the city being changed for each workshop. The workshops will follow a three day plan and entail a very interesting practical task for the workshop attenders.
At the meeting all members of the partnership were represented: AidLearn (Portugal) Volkshochschule Stuttgart (Germany), Norrköpings Stadsmuseum (Sweeden), Die Wiener Volkshochschulen (Austria), PRO-MED (Poland), Balkan Agency for Sustainable Development (Bulgaria), Associazione Nestátních Neziskových Organizací Jihomoravského Kraje (Czech Republic) and the coordinating partner Poleski Ośrodek Sztuki (Poland).
