On January 13th was held a kick-off meeting with the partners from N. Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia and Bulgaria as part of the project Organic Agriculture Innovation Platform funded by the the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 2 – KA 204 – Strategic partnerships for adult education)
Together with the colleagues from Good Earth, Macedonia-Export, Serbia Organica, Eko-Zadar and the Bulgarian School of Politics “Dimitry Panitza” the coordinators from Forum CSRD discussed the upcoming activities within the project in order to develop new and innovative educational content for adult education on organic food production. Beneficiaries will be primarily adult trainers, CSOs and citizens interested in agricultural and environmental issues.
The partners presented the web site oaiplatform.com, where all educational and other useful materials for organic production, marketing and branding of organic products produced as part of this project will be published. In addition to the educational aspect of this platform, the website will also have informational and promotional purposes, in order to make the content interesting for visitors who are not directly interested in organic food production.
Over the coming months, the partners will collaborate on creation of several intellectual outputs that will be published on the project website: study on organic farming in all countries included in the project, manuals for adult traininers and adult education service providers, which will enable them to organize courses on organic production and branding of products.
