Successful SOURCE Short-Term Joint Staff Training in Athens
The SOURCE Short-Term Joint Staff Training in Athens was very successful.
The meeting was hosted by partner NEAGEN on 8-9-10/06/2023.
Staff from the partner organisations AGRIFORM, MATE and NEAGEN were all present and the three days of training were very productive for the continuation of the activity.
The Staff discussed and trained each other on the following topic:
– the experience of social and organic farming in Italy, Hungary and Greece;
– the results of the national validation meetings with stakeholders;
– the competence profile of the social and organic farmer and the need for adequate VET training;
– the methodology to be adopted for the joint elaboration of a policy recommendation plan involving the most representative stakeholders.
During the meeting a very interesting lecture on social entrepreneurship was given by Dr Christos Tsilikis. There was also a visit to the Equalact Social Farm, which works on the social inclusion of disadvantaged people through employment in agriculture.
