A message from the project coordinators- October 2020
Category : Uncategorized
Nobody imagined early this year that a worldwide pandemic will turn upside down our daily routines. Several months have passed now and ChildIN partners have widely demonstrated resilience and commitment to continue with the project activities despite all. Monthly online meetings were already usual, but they enabled more than ever to be in contact and to discuss the best solution for each partner.
First of all, a 6-months extension was requested in order to have enough time to implement all the ongoing and pending activities. More concretely, since the pandemic was declared just before the planned start of the training delivery, several options were and are being implemented to replace when necessary blended training, mainly 100% distance learning, including both tele-learning with trainers and online learning at the Moodle platform.
Besides the training delivery, a face-to-face meeting was planned in June in Nevers (France), then postponed to October, and lastly transformed into an online meeting.
Last but not least, the final meeting and the final conference planned in Brussels have been also postponed from October 2020 to early 2021. In case the evolution of the pandemic worsens, the partners will call again on their resilience and also their imagination in order to propose a relevant and interesting format for those events and meet thus the project objectives at best possible.
