Reflections on the Kick-off meeting of the SPEAR project. Part 3

Interaction, Brainstorming and Meeting Results

As the kick-off was taking place in Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, the organizers could not have passed the opportunity to present his legacy to the consortium in an engaging way – during the dinner the partners had to detect any gender/social bias indication hidden in one of writer’s stories.

The second and third days were dedicated to the work of SPEAR’s Coordination and Administration Group in order to set a clear path ahead for the project and each WP through brainstorming activities and discussions. Additionally, dissemination responsibilities were explained by Europa Media as well as the first steps to be taken for wide project promotion.

As a result, the consortium compiled a list of actions for the next two months, recorded interesting videos with project’s experts and agreed on the topics for the blog posts to follow.

Therefore, stay tuned and follow the news on our website and social media to learn more about SPEAR and its initial steps for successful set-up and implementation of Gender Equality Plans in Europe.

In the words of Eva Sophia Myers, the opportunity presented in SPEAR is “a hard and fast help in that it gives concrete hours of work to instigate and support positive and necessary change” and “it is an obligation that will help us stay on a true course and aim our SPEAR!”
