First meeting of participating organisations in the Netherlands.
Learn for Life is the READ IT project partner. Also participating are the Frisian organisation of small villages (Doarpswurk) and the organisation of small villages in the Frisian municipality of Weststellingwerf (VKD),
In Germany „READ IT“ is integrated in the campaign „Ich bin dabei“. In this framework we had a local kick-off meeting in the „Verbandsgemeinde Bad Marienberg“ – the local authority of 20.000 inhabitants in the rural area of the Westerwald. Aim was to attract local people for the „READ IT“ project and set up a local working group for the strategic partnership. Some excused before because of illness or other appointments but 15 local citizens attend the kick-off meeting including some local mayors. The result: People got interested and are eager to go on working in this project – a very good start for the local project group that started from scratch.
The next meeting is already planned for February to start with content and future plannings.
