Final Partner meeting in Birmingham

No Comments 15 July 2013

Partners came to the UK at the end of June for the final meeting of the Partnership.

The main meeting  involved partners reporting on their recent work with particular reference to the Debtless Workshops and making plans for the completion of the Final Report. The social / cultural programme included a trip to Warwick Castle by train where partners were able to gain an insight into Ye Olde England!

The Partner Meeting was the last formal ‘get together’ for all the organisations who have been involved in the Debtless Grundtvig Partnership, but strong working relationships have been built up over the last two years and we are hopeful that there will be other opportunities for us to work together in the future.

Tri-lateral meeting UK – NL – IT

No Comments 05 June 2013

A special meeting was held in Leeuwarden, Netherlands from the 22nd to 24th May to discuss aspects of the organisation and delivery of the Debtless workshops. Three partners were represented at the meeting: our hosts the Netherlands Partners, deplannenmakers – Crystal from the UK and NEED from Italy.

The meeting was held onboard the amazing Ark – a floating metal structure on the waterways of Leewarden which is home to deplannenmakers.

Captain Ritske Jan Merkus can be seen in the foreground with the ARK behind. The meeting proved to be most interesting and valuable and provided an excellent review of ‘best practice’ relating to the workshops.

Ljubljana Project Meeting

No Comments 04 February 2013

The fourth Partner Meeting of the Debtless Partnership was held in the Slovenian Capital of Ljubljana 17 -18 January 2012. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss issues relating to Project management, planning of further activities, distribution of the tasks, brainstorming on evaluation questionnaires, presentation on organization of national workshops.

These workshops are central to the success of the project as they are taking place in all the partner countries, involving large numbers of individuals in the target group. The course has been fine tuned by our partners from the Netherlands and covers the key aspects of successful Money Management to ensure that people do not fall into debt – and if they do, show how it is possible to get back on track.

The social programme’s highlight was a trip to the Postojna Caves where partners experienced a train ride and walking tour of some of the spectacular galleries and tunnels and halls of one of Slovenia’s major tourist venues.

Thanks to Alenka and Klemen for their hospitality!

Third Partner Meeting – Klaipeda, Lithuania

1 Comment 10 July 2012

The third partner meeting was held in Klaipeda, Lithuania on 5th – 6th July 2012. Representatives of the partner organisations were involved in an excellently planned programme of meetings and social events. Not only were we able to review all the activities and work which has already been carried out but we were able to plan and allocate future work to make Debtless a valuable and rewarding project which will have a real impact.  The social and cultural activities gave us all an insight into the beautiful town and surrounding area of Klaipeda on the coast of Lithuania.

A big ‘Thank You’ to Reda, Lukas and Linas for their wonderful welcome and hospitality!

Leeuwarden by night

2 and 3 February d e p l a n n e n m a k e r s hosted the second workconference of the EU funded project. The first attendent arrived in Leeuwarden Tuesday evening, Vitek from Czech Republic was responsible for the agenda of the meeting and did his preparations on Wednesday. Also there was time to do a little sightseeing in the beautiful city of Leeuwarden. In the evening every one arrived in Leeuwarden, the attendants from Lithuania had a trip of 18 hours and there were several flights with a delay. The train trip from Schiphol to Leeuwarden was in most cases longer than the normal 2,5 hours.

The meeting started Thursday morning 9.00 sharp at the office of d e p l a n n e n m a k e r s, first the agenda and practical matters were discussed. Quickly the meeting changed to the presentation of the website made by Crystal from the UK, the site was after some administrative adjustments accepted by the attendents. Dissemination, results of market research and discussion about the content of the guidebook filled the rest of the day.

At the end of the afternoon Ger Jaarsma, director of the Kredietbank Nederland, held a presentation about how debt solvation has changed during the years. A very interesting meeting for all of us. After that it was time to learn something about the history of Leeuwarden, a guided tour with Horst Schulz trough the Blokhuispoort, the old prison in Leeuwarden, currently in use as a centre for entrepreneurs in the cultural and artistic sector. The evening started with a dinner at the Stadscafe and ended in the Irish Pub for an informal meeting. Friday morning the tasks were divided and due to the snow every one with a flight on Friday hurried to Schiphol.

It was a pleasure to host this meeting and looking forward to the next meeting in Klapedja 5 and 6 July 2012.
