What do we want to do in this project: project activity 1

In the start-up phase of the project, existing contacts with key activists in Bulgaria, Hungary and Serbia are renewed. From them, background data about the situation of the mother centers are gathered and logistical preparations for the other activities are made.
With all project partners, the administrative procedures are established, including criteria for monitoring and evaluation. In order to start right away, ad-hoc administrative tools are installed. These include an online project drop-box, a review and supervision panel of board members and an email list of primary and secondary groups to keep them informed of the project progress. More public information and communication tools such as a project website or a project Facebook page can be installed at this stage as well.
Together we will work out principles of work, communication and participation. This initially work is done in regular skype meetings and during a first trip to Bulgaria, where a day-long working meeting on process and work-culture will be organized.
