6-14th of March, 2019
Lagodekhi National park is the place where young fellows gathered as a full group again and last time in the frame of the programme. Participants from Armenia, Georgia, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Ukraine came together to reflect the whole learning and experiential year that they had gone through in the project of Youth as Peacebuilders- Youth Policy for Peace.
Before the evaluation seminar, each country group had implemented youth-led community activities. Based on the community needs assessment the topical focus was different in each country group, yet having a similar goal, that is supporting youth participation in policy-making process, more precisely in policies, that are related to peace.
At the meeting invited facilitators have created the space for reflecting the personal growths, competence development in the project topics and cooperation building by the participants with the organisations that they were representing. At the same time, participants could evaluate the success of the community projects applied by themselves, as well as impact of the project from their perspective.
Together with the participants, there was a parallel meeting of 6 coordinators from the partner organisations. They, from their side, have evaluated the project process until that time, reflected the different aspect of it, and planned the next steps.
Beautiful and authentic nature was supporting the process being peaceful and alive at the same time. Thank to the forest around, we could implement plenty of the activities outside.
