Launch of WeDO2 project on 6-7 november 2013 in Brussels
And the WeDO experience continues! In parallel to the ongoing activities happeing in the WeDO partnership after the end of the project, a group a former project partners together with organisations coming from new countries managed to launch a follow-up project called 'WeDO2', or 'WeDO too'.
WeDO2 involves (Belgium, Germany, UK, Poland, Austria, Greece and Netherlands) and is coordinated by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Liesbeth De Donder). It is supported by the Gruntvig programme and aims at ‘supporting the exchange of learning experiences and good practices between organisations working in the field of formal, non-formal or informal adult education (older people and/or informal carers' organisations, universities, training centers, service providers) to improve the ability of different stakeholders (older people, informal caregivers, service providers) to cooperate in planning and delivering long-term care services and so improve quality of life for older people in need of care and assistance. Moreover, based on the existing European Quality framework for long-term care services developed in the WeDO project (2010-2012) it will seek to develop with a participatory approach new educational tools (an online train the trainer toolkit, learning areas where trainings will be tested) adapted to different groups (older people, informal carers, service providers). The exchange of good practices, participatory approach, construction of the train-the-trainer toolkit, realisation of the innovative learning-areas and exploitation events will have a significant contribution for a durable activation and participation of different stakeholders in the process of ensuring quality long-term care.’
The partners will meet for the first time on 6-7 November. The website will regularly be updated to follow the project activities.
