The first meeting of AlIce project partners was due to ongoing COVID pandemic situation held online on January 28th, 2022.
Partners discussed and worked on initial tasks of the project to start accordingly and in time. Key part of the meeting were the individual Workgroups of project partners bringing together good practices and ideas for the successful start of the project. As the project is focused on active citizenship education at schools throughout Europe, the key was to establish common grounds for the upcoming focus talks every partner will go through in their country. The goal of the Workgroups to set these common grounds was achieved and a guide and questionnaire were produced afterwards.
