Implemented the third transnational meeting of SEAM in Brno, Czech Republic.

Fourteen representatives of the seven partner organisations of the project met between the 03/02/2016 to the 06/02/2016 in Brno (CZ) in order to check together all the current results of SEAM, work on the next project activities and discuss possible follow ups of this initiative.

During the first part of the meeting, the trainers and coordinators responsible of developing the learning materials of the project for adult education on second languages and mobility, had the opportunity of resuming and exploring the results of the local workshops that each partner organisation is carrying out on each country with adults (over 50 years old) for testing the materials on second languages, interculturality and mobility developed by the project team on its first stage.

Once the results of these activities were analyzed to use them as a base for the project materials, participants focused in one of the other main targets of the meeting: to organize the second transnational training of the project (C2) that will take place between the 30/03/2016 the 05/04/2016 in Slovenia. This event will join together all the trainers that coordinated the previous project activities and 35 adult learners (5 per partner country) that have participated on the local workshops of the project and will attend this activity in order to continue with the testing of the project intellectual outputs.

Once all the logistics, transports and programme of activities of this training was agreed, participants on the meeting dealt with other issues and especially with the idea of creating a follow up or second part on this project that could continue with the work that it is doing on SEAM and using its materials.
