The activities of the international seminar under our project “TRAIN: Tracing Integration policies trough Structured Dialogue” have been hosted in Porto and Gondomar by the Portuguese partner “Geoclube” from 16th to 19th of January.

Aim of the seminar was to collect the feedback and the ideas emerged during local consultative activities with participants from 13 to 30 years old.

The seminar was attended by delegates from the partner associations of the project: Italy, Portugal, Austria, Belgium, Romania, Estonia, Malta, Bulgaria and Finland. During the seminar they worked on the development of recommendations based on local needs and issues, analyzing strengths and weaknesses. The second part of the seminar was dedicated to monitoring the youthdialogue.eu  platform and adopting a strategy for facilitating the online interaction.

Furthermore, the delegates were hosted by the Municipality of Gondomar in the “Volunteer House” a multifunctional space managed by various local entities and in the offices of the Portuguese partner. The work ended with the presentation of the project and its activities in the “Colegio Claret” school where, at the end of the frontal presentation, a laboratory was organized to facilitate online interaction through the platform.

“TRAIN: Tracing Integration policies trough Structured Dialogue” is a project that falls under Key Action 3 of the Erasmus + mobility program and aims to promote dialogue between young people and political decision-makers.
