GLEN’s top networking seminar, the Annual Event was held in Slovenia from 8th till 11th November with over sixty participants!
Above meeting, sharing projects and ideas, the main focus of the seminar was to contribute to the discussion on the cooperation between GLEN and the hosting organisations (Partners). For that, we were pleased to have Martial Kouderin (Benin) and Stanislas Binelli (Cameroon) among us.
Discussions were divided in three workshops, namely (1) the relationship of GLEN and the Partners, (2) how could we make global education (GE) more global, and (3) communication, evaluation and feedback (between GLEN and the Partners). All three workshops were a true success, thanks to the committed participants and the excellent moderation of Judith Blume, Kasia Szeniawska and Magdalena Mazurek. Main results will be published on the website later on.
Another highlight of the Event was the start of the process to update the GLEN strategy plan in 2013. As the previous paper has expired, the Members Assembly meeting, which preceded the Annual Event, decided to enter into a renewal process. The open call was made during the seminar for participants to join. The group is formulating its schedule and agenda and will soon announce its plan to proceed and the ways for all to contribute.
The 2nd Annual Event was made possible by the financial contribution of ASA-Programm, Engagement Global (Germany) and BRECI (France) and the in-kind contribution of the host organisation Zavod Voluntariat. Thank you! Special thanks go to Tina Trdin and Urban Presker for the flawless organisation.
