The project „Strengthening global awareness in the local communities - Kolping 2020 Strategy” consists of:
- transnational meetings – 6 meetings
During all international workshops the participants will present their organisation focusing on one specific subject. In the beginning, emphasis will be put on the strength and gained achievements of the organisations. When the trust among the participants is developed, critical reflections will be enabled. Due to the large number of partners and of key trainers from every country it was decided to implement the project during the period of three years. The main work will be done during the transnational project meetings – followed by the implementation by each participating organization. Each meeting will be held in accordance with the planned time schedule. There will be one meeting in each country. Each meeting will last min. 3 whole days and allow to organize trainings for key trainers of global education to develop their knowledge and to share professional competences, methods and practices among the participants. The transnational project meetings will have various formats, i.e. study visits, presentations, discussion workshops and training courses. The events will also allow training the teachers in using the new tools. By every meeting a balance will be kept between the participation of transnational participants - at each meeting it is expected similar number of participants from each country.
