On October 26-27th, the `Our Life, Our Voice’ project partners met in Cluj Napoca, Romania, to review their progress and prepare the final events of the project.
The partners first focused on the finalisation of Intellectual Outputs (IO) 1 and 2. IO1 will present the results of the investigation into poverty carried out by young people themselves from the UK, Romania, Italy, Finland and Germany. IO2 will go a step further, by formulating policy recommendations that will be shared at national and European levels to help politicians tackle youth poverty. The participants also discussed the third IO: a toolkit for youth workers across Europe on how to engage young disadvantaged people.
Together with the Brussels-based street workers’ network Dynamo International, project partners started planning the dissemination part of the project. Each partner presented the events it plans to organise to share the project’s results at national scale. The participants also designed the Final conference that will be organised in Brussels on 3-5 May 2017, focusing on how to make the event as interactive and inclusive for young people as possible.
