SOCIAL FARMING IN EUROPE: IHF Joins The FASST Closing Meeting in Tetovo, Macedonia – September 19, 2019
September 23rd, 2019
On September 19th, 2019, IHF met with the other 8 partners from 5 Countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Italy, Macedonia and Spain) in Tetovo, Macedonia, to discuss specific points in the Closing Meeting of FASST (Formazione per Agricoltura Sociale e Sviluppo Territoriale), a Project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission.
During the project, an OER Platform has been created with free access for everyone to the developed training courses. Such modules were indeed developed on the basis of an in-depth research at EU level in the Countries involved which highlighted a great deal of unexplored and unexploited potential for social inclusion, employability and rural development, undermined by the lack of a coherent regulatory framework and definition at EU and national levels which very few EU Member States have. The final report available at http://www.fasstproject.eu/pdf/FASST_IO2_Final_Report.pdf. Partners then tested the training courses on 331 representatives of target groups, getting feedback for further fine-tuning of the courses. 12 training modules were produced and available at http://www.fasstproject.eu/training.php in 5 languages (Bulgarian, English, Italian, Macedonian, Spanish).
During the meeting, Partners reviewed all the deliverables produced over the last 2 years and finalised the guidelines for future trainings regarding IO4 for 200 Target groups trained in 5 countries.
FASST objective is to advance the effectiveness of Social Farming at systemic and practice levels by developing concrete and relevant training for the sector (both providers of services and social farmers), deliver the training to validate its relevance and accuracy, develop a system of sustainability, mainstreaming and uptake of the training through the OER Platform beyond EC co-financing.
