CMS took in Gothenburg, Sweden from 9 – 13 of April 2017. April 9th is the arrival day, April 13th – departure day, April 10 – 12 were three networking days.
The goal of CMS:
was to develop a network of reliable partner organisations willing to collaborate in the future project financed by Erasmus+ programme on the topic of intercultural communication and social inclusion or other related topics.
The initial idea was to find partners to work together on a long-term (2 year) project that was supposed to focus on adaptation and upscaling of “Does Culture Matter” training programme to address the needs of organisations working with integration and inclusion on national and international levels.
However, we saw CMS as an opportunity to network and develop other Erasmus + projects on the topics relevant for partner organisations.
About “Does Culture Matter?”:
“Does Culture Matter?” was a training programme realised with the financial support of the European Commission and with participation of European and Asian countries in 2015. As a result of this project we developed a three-phase training course that covered culturally crucial topics relevant across various sectors, such as for profit companies, universities, NGOs and public bodies.
