    Meeting Rhodos | October 2023
    During the EfVet conference in Rhodes, the project partners met to prepare for the kick-off meeting in November in Verona. It was nice to meet physically again after we had written the project plan together and received the positive answer in August that the project had received a Go. The content of the agenda was set. Besides formal Erasmus matters such as presenting the handbook and going through the contracts, the content of the project will also be on the agenda. Tasks, expectations and experiences will be exchanged.

    Kick off Verona | November 2023
    This meeting aimed at launching the VET SDGs project which officially started on 1st of October 2023. 
    In particular the aim of the meeting was: 

    - Provide all participants with a detailed project overview and specific information about each Work Package 
    - Prepare a detailed work plan of the activities for the first year of the project 
    - Establish financial and administrative procedures as well as the management structure of the project 

    The first day there was a presentation  given about WorkPackage 2 'Staff awareness development' and about the SDGs we selected during the writing of the project proposal: n° 3 (good health/well-being), 8 (decent work/economic growth), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 13 (climate action), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land). 
    The results of WP 2 should be:

    Several experiences were told, we were informed about different topics about working on sustainability. Differences were also clarified like the water shortage in South Europe comparing to the Northern part of Europe where this challenge not (yet?) exist.
