On the last day of the training course, Andreas again gave some input – the topic was how to build up an international network. Therefore it was important to make clear, what a community is, which values are existing in communities and also what is critical for a successful community (based on the knowledge from the “community Round-table”).
After this, the participants got the following task: They should think about the strength, that they are bringing into the network (e.g.: Why you? What actions do you do well? What knowledge, skills and attitude do you help you?), about the question of opportunities (e.g.: What is missing on the market? What real opportunities are present today? What is going on around you that seems to be useful? From which tendencies and trends can you profit and how?) as well as the question about the threats (e.g.: What are the negative tendencies in play today? What obstacles do you face? Who might cause you problems in the future and how?).
The next part of the programme was to think about ideas for a follow-up project! In order to this the participants should prepare ideas for topics and issues, the next workshop/ project could be about (of course this includes thinking about funding programmes, specifying the aims,..).
Last task in the project for the participants was to evaluate the workshops, the organisation, everything what comes to mind. On red cards they should write one thing they now are seeing different than one week ago, on blue cards should be focused on one thing which was very valuable for them, they yellow ones were for one thing they do not agree with (or do like) and on the white ones they should write one thing they would like to learn more about (maybe in the next project).
The day as well as the project ended with a meeting in the Neustadt, where all had an awesome dinner together. The participants could resume the project and just have a great last evening together.
