MEETING EVALUATION

Tugce: The meeting was important, because now I feel part of the project. It’s important to think about the lobby part of the network. This network is fundamental for the recognition of youth work. Milos: Satisfied with the results of the meeting. There’s a lot of work to do in the next month. It’s important that in the next meetings we thought about the Mission and Vision that we want for this network and try to find our uniqueness approach at this topic (what makes this network different in the approach to youth participation). Iveta: Was important to understand better the project and what is expected from the steering group. Ellie: Good atmosphere. After this meeting we can have a more concrete idea about what is expected from the network and from the steering group. It was important to have developed the first draft timeline, because, now, we can see some more feasible steps and actions. Bruno: Very happy with the results of the meeting. Also the fact that we will need to work intensely during the coming four months will help to keep us focus. This was the beginning of a long walk that I really believe can have a huge impact in the quality of youth work at local level particularly on youth policy development at local level.
