It’s the heart of the project – our steering committee consisting of all project partner. We think it is a good sign for an active project that the committee is regularly in contact, having Skype meetings, documenting everything in written minutes etc. By the turn of the year we will go to the final phase of the project. We still have two transnational meetings in 2019 and the writing of the manual has already started. That’s good progress.
We are looking forward to the things that will come. We are ready and very confident that we will finish the project accroding to our aims. See u all in 2019.

Preparatory meeting with our local partners, in order to discuss the 2nd transnational meeting in Sweden, the schedule sent by Ake and the implementation of local activities.

First contact with the association “Rencontre Ville-Campagne”
We’ve made contact with a local association called “Rencontre Ville-Campagne” (Town-Country Gathering) which aim is to bring young consumers and farmers together. With special learning material, farmers answer the children’s questions for an hour and a half and explain them their lives, the passion for their profession but also their daily difficulties and challenges.
Awareness raising actions in a 2 rural schools (Guerville), about European and French subsidies to implement citizen’s projects in the rural areas and more generally about the European Union. And the 25th May, as part of the “Joli mois de l’Europe” (European month), the two classes met for a giant quiz in a media library. This specific action has been carried out with one of our local “Read it” partners, GPS&O.
The Maison de l’Europe des Yvelines got funding from the FFME (French Federation of Europe Houses) in June, to set up a conference about the Common Agricultural Policy, “Parlez-vous PAC?” (“Do you speak CAP?”), which will deal with the following topic “Fair income for French farmers”. We will do it with another Read it partner, the agricultural school, and in partnership with another school in a very isolated Norman area. The school from Normandy will go to Saint-Germain in March 2019 to benefit from all the speakers’ experience.
13 awareness raising sessions in 2 primary schools (in Saint-Germain-en-Laye), on the following topics: sustainable development, citizenship and solidarity initiatives in rural areas (compost collect for the AMAP’s (association supporting small farming), new entertainment places research (sheepfolds, fruit picking etc.) Graphic representation, based upon Keith Harring work, of “citizenship” and collaboration between the land and the towns.
A public activity in Sweden for the promotion of our project on the 8th of May.
We ”occupied” the hall of the municipal hall in the community of Ljusdal, up north in the county, to give information of our project and about our Europe House. We met around 75 intrested people during 2 hours. In the photos is Hasse and a representiv, Lena Husen, from ”All o Sweden shall live”. We had meetings and contact with people who will be engaged in the meeting in Sweden. Very productive.
