Professionals and members of the five partner organisations of the project met from the 02/05/2017 to the 05/05/2017 on a kick-off meeting that made possible to start to work on the project materials and distribute among partners its creation. The first transnational activity of ReYion gave to its partners the chance to meet and get to know, not only the individuals who will work together during the whole project implementation, but also their organisations and programmes for youth empowerment. Once all the entities were presented, attendees shared the results obtained during the first stage of the project on which different interviews took place among youth groups , organisations and public administrations of the five partner countries. Their objective was to establish the specific learning goals that the learning materials to be created during the project should promote. Besides this, the encounter made also possible to participants to start to work and divide the tasks towards the creation of the main project final output: a manual related to the training of young people on the associative field and the implementation of youth initiatives. “ReYion: Rural Empowerment through Youth Initiatives and Organisations Networking” is a 19-month partnership at international level funded under the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission and coordinated by Bitartean Jolasean (Spain) with the support of KOMUNIKUJEME OPS (Czech Republic), European Institute for Local Development (Greece), Associazione di Promozione Sociale Futuro Digitale (Italy) and Zavod Mladinska Mreza MaMa (Slovenia).
