Evaluation seminar "Let’s EVALUATE with our Neighbours"

Evaluation seminar of projects realised in frames of Youth in Action (YiA) Programme in cooperation between partners from three neighbouring regions: Eastern Europe and Caucasus, South East Europe and Euromed as well as Programme Countries.


In 2007 regional SALTOs Euromed, SEE and EECA together with European Commission and French National Agency organised a seminar "Let's MEET our Neighbours and the World". At that time we wanted to give a big kick-off seminar that would open possibilities for cooperation with the Neighbouring Countries and the World within Youth in Action Programme.

Next year, 2008, our cooperation developed and together with National Agencies of France, Poland and Slovenia we had organised a second stage of "Let's..." events - "Let's WORK with our Neighbours". Aim of this multidimensional seminar was to develop further high quality projects within priorities of Youth in Action Programme.

Now the time to EVALUATE the cooperation between partners from three neighbouring regions: EECA, SEE and Euromed as well as Programme Countries has COME!
