The final project meeting of #CoOp project was held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, between 21-23 May, 2019. The project Romanian partner Fundatia Danis hosted participants representing partner organizations Youth Work Ireland (Ireland), Asset Tec (Greece), Fundacja Robinson Crusoe (Poland) and Norsensus Mediaforum (Norway).
During the project meeting, the partners got the chance to revise the progress made so far with the ongoing intellectual outputs work, more precisely the CoOp Training Toolkit, the CoOp Ready Tools for Fundraising, CoOp Best Practice Guide, CoOp Policy Briefs and CoOp Vlog – all aimed to enhance youth organizations’ capacity to cooperate with SMEs from their community.
The partners also planned the last round of the local multiplier events which would take place at the end of June 2019. Each partner will organize local events engaging youth organizations, SMEs, universities, public authorities and youth workers and NGO staff, in order to present the project’s results and the open educational resources developed. All the resources will be made available for free on the CoOp website, so that any youth organization or SME could use in their future cooperation work.
Finally, the partners also discussed new opportunities to make the CoOp work used and valuable in their communities and countries, and to continue the work for enhancing the cooperation between youth organizations and SMEs.
