RIDE Transnational meeting in Slovenia

March 20, 2024

Successful conclusion of the fourth project meeting towards River Festivals

At the end of January 2024, the partners of the Erasmus+ project "RIDE - River of ideas" from Italy, Greece, Slovenia and Portugal met in Ljubljana for the fourth transnational project meeting, hosted by the local organisation Drustvo Bodi Svetloba. Three intense days allowed the partner organisations to discuss the next activities to be implemented and to promote a collective reflection on the results achieved, in view of the project's conclusion, scheduled for August 2024.

On the first working day, the partners shared the activities implemented at the local level and discussed the challenges faced. This was followed by a discussion on the preparation of the project's second intellectual output, which involves the creation of the “Re-Think the River Toolkit” to make the project's methodology and products available to the public, youth workers and youth organisation. The second day of the meeting was devoted to dissemination activities and administrative issues, both of which are essential to the success of the project.

However, there was no shortage of time to visit the beautiful city of Ljubljana, admire the ancient castle, visit the traditional market, and walk along the Ljubljanica River, which runs through the old city centre.

The project partners are now working to finalise the methodological toolkit and jointly organise the River Festivals that will take place in each country.
