EARLY TRANSNATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT MEETING IN FLÅM, Norway
17 May 2022
Today is Norway’s national holiday and on this special day CSR are privileged to welcome their project partners for the Erasmus + project EARLY – Enhancing Rural Elders to Boost Creativity in Agriculture.
The EARLY team aims to match the “old ways” with new generations through creativity to activate new trends.
We believe that cultural traditions are important because they transmit shared values, stories, and goals from one generation to the next. And today we had the pleasure to share with our partners the unique tradition of the celebration of the 17th of May. On today’s holiday people proudly dress in ‘bunad’, – the traditional costume, of which there are over 200 different kinds in Norway and learn to say ‘Gratulerer med dagen’. That’s how Norwegians greet each other on the day. This can be roughly translated as ‘Congratulations on this special day’. It also means ‘Happy birthday’. This is a bit confusing for foreigners, but it kind of makes sense, as this is the anniversary of Norway’s constitution, which was signed at Eidsvoll on May 17th, 1814.
The first session of the transnational project meeting was a productive day for the Early team with many project management and cultural activities.The day was concluded with a cozy traditional dinner in Flåm and during the second day of the conference, the consortium met again for another exciting day. Moreover, during the second session, further milestones were discussed and planned.
Partner meeting in Lucera, Italy
08 October 2021
Last Friday, October 8, the Transnational Project Meeting took place in the scope of the EARLY “Enhancing Rural Elders to Boost Creativity in Agriculture”. The 6 partners have met in Lucera (Italy), in order to discuss and plan the EaRLY Model and other details regarding the management of the initiative.
EaRLY Model will be designed and protopyped throght a participatory rural appraisal methodology to research the state of the art of experience, practices, knowledge of elders and old generation - that invisible treasure that characterized the internal areas and that is going to be lost because new generations aren’t learning. The focus of the model is about how to share elderly knowledge to integrate intergenerational exchange and to enhance further the connection between technology development and green economy.
We believe that this face-to-face meeting between the different countries brought great benefits both for the successful implementation of the project and for the strengthening of ties between the different organizations.
