    Recap of the network meeting in Budaörs & Banská Bystrica

    The second Core Network Meeting of the Agents of Co-Existence (AoCE) network took place from 4th March 2024 to 7th March 2024. Due to the close geographical proximity of Budaörs (Hungary) and Banská Bystrica (Slovakia) we were able to organise another joint transnational meeting – and again minimising our ecological footprint – consisting of visits of these two lovely cities, located at the heart of (Central) Europe.

    Same Journey; new stages…


    As I write this, I’ve just changed trains - moving to the next phase of a journey to another country in Europe. Whilst this current train journey is not related to the Digi-Inclusion project, that is a very different situation to the months before the New Year, when Digi-Inclusion travel was pretty much all I knew!


    The initial period of any URBACT project is an intense yet rewarding experience, and that time last year was no exception – getting to see first-hand the starting point of all our nine project partners in the network, visiting each one in turn to meet their municipal teams, local stakeholders and partners, and to get a sense of the place and it’s local context.

    Transnational meeting on employment of the WELDI project by Fundão, Portugal

    Transnational meeting on employment of the WELDI project by Fundão, Portugal 

    WELDI’s second transnational meeting took place online and was organized by the city of Fundão. Fundão has a rich history influenced by various cultures over the centuries. Its development is linked to agriculture, crafts and other local economic activities. This first thematic meeting addressed the subject of employment for newcomers. This is an essential aspect of the project, and one in which Fundão has a great deal of experience.
