It was useful for all 4 participants to have a quick look on the aims and objectives of the partnership.

It was agreed to change also some of the parts.

The partnership will be able to deliver modern approaches in cultural heritage education and training, contributing to filling of existing gap, matching the trainees’ needs and being a real support both for adult learners and for their trainers. After the learners have learnt about the importance of cultural heritages and about different cultures, they will take part in an online forum that will be dedicated to their feelings and ideas.
  9. 9. - (5.4) Partnership and Distributions of Tasks Because the reduction in the number of the participating institutions, we also had to revise the tasks of the existing partners. The changes are as follows; The second meeting will be held in Italy, not in Romania.

It was decided that the original application document will be edited and re-distributed by email. - The work programme in part (6.1), Number of the Learners and Staff involved in the Partnership in part (6.2) and Expected Results in part (6.3) were changed according the revised application form. The changes made are highlighted in the application form to be sent to all partners. During the meeting it was also discussed that we should share some of the responsibilities. We revised the common and specific tasks as mentioned in the application form. In addition to these tasks; - ATAKUM ADULT EDUCATION CENTRE (TURKEY) and MEWCAT (GREECE) will be responsible for the creation and organization of the e-tools such as a mail group, an Internet webpage… etc. - INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS AND INFORMATICS (LITHUANIA) and ASOCIATIA BRIDGE LANGUAGE STUDY HOUSE (ROMANIA) will be responsible for the assessment of the whole project. - CENTRO STUDI E FORMAZIONE VILLA MONTESCA (ITALY) and CPZ-INTERNATIONAL, CENTRE FOR KNOWLEDGE PROMOTION (SLOVENIA) will be responsible for the design of the” ADHER HERITAGES HANDBOOK”.6 Merve DUYGULU, the coordinator will prepare a draft PROJECT TEAM MEMBERS SHEET and will distribute it among partners. The task of each partner will be to create a project implementation team as soon as they go back to their country. They will also share the responsibilities amongst the team members. It was also decided to create WORK PACKAGES, which will show us what to do when. Each work package will consist of tasks to be done in the following three – four months. This package will help each partner assess the success of the previous activities. The logo of the partnership will be determined by a LOGO COMPETITION to be organized amongst the partners. Each partner will prepare a logo and send it to the coordinator until 15th, December 2009. Each partner will prepare a problem analysis paper about cultural heritages at local level and will present it in the second meeting in Italy.
  10. 10. We could fix the following meeting places and the dates. It is as follows; The 2nd meeting will be held in March, 2010 in the hosting of the Italian partner, CENTRO STUDI E FORMAZIONE VILLA MONTESCA, The 3rd meeting will be held in June, 2010 in the hosting of the Greek partner, MEWCAT The 4th meeting will be held in September, 2010 in the hosting of the Lithuanian partner, INSTITUTE OF MATHEMATICS AND INFORMATICS The 5th meeting will be held in December, 2010 in the hosting of the Slovenian partner, CPZ-7 INTERNATIONAL, CENTRE FOR KNOWLEDGE PROMOTION The 6th meeting will be held in April, 2011 in the hosting of the Romanian partner, ASOCIATIA BRIDGE LANGUAGE STUDY HOUSE The final meeting will be held in July, 2011 in the hosting of the Turkish partner, ATAKUM ADULT EDUCATION CENTRE. The mobility actions of the learners and the project meetings will be held in the same period. In each mobility action, minimum 4 learners and 2 staff will be participating. It was also agreed that the duration of each mobility will be 5 days; one day for arrival, three work days and the last day for departures. The participants had the opportunity to see the official project website (www.adyourhe.com). The webpage is now active. This webpage will be used as an effective tool in order to obtain communication among participants, project coordinators and the project team members. The webpage will be in one language, which is English but some useful documents will be translated into the mother tongue of the partners. In order to provide a fast communication, we created a yahoo group named as adher@yahoogroups.com. A membership e-mail was be sent to all participants, including the8 managing and teaching staff and the learners. However, it was understood that some of the partners were hesitant or failed to register in the mail group. As an alternative form, Marc Pillich- Wright, Romanian Project Manager, suggested using another mail group named adher@blsh.com. All participants will be encouraged to use this e-mail group as the main communication tool. Another e-tool that will be used in the partnership will be http://pro-adher.ning.com. This tool is going to be used by the project team members as it asks for a special username and a password. A private invitation will be sent to all members for registration. Anyone who does not have an invitation will not be able to benefit from this e-tool. The general aim of this partnership is to increase and empower the mutual understanding and dialogue among different cultures by improving the knowledge of people about cultural heritages and helping them find innovative ways to access to knowledge of cultural heritages since it is an essential factor in the identity of each country and a privileged means of facilitating mutual9 comprehension among countries. It was decide that we should involve civil society members in local and international activities in order to achieve this goal. Therefore, providing active involvement of learners will have contributed to increase civil society awareness about the importance of cultural heritages. It was also agreed in the meeting that we should provide learners with some special classes on cultural heritages.
  11. 11. We were planning to prepare a booklet named “EU HERITAGES”. However; we have decided to change the name as “ADOPT YOUR HERITAGE” as the booklet that we are going to prepare by the end of the project would not reflect all EU Heritages. We are going to10 discuss about the contents of the booklet during the mobility actions and also under a topic in a forum in the webpage of the partnership. Some basic parts in the booklet will be in the native tongue of the partners but most of it will be in English. The meeting was briefly summarised. It was agreed by everybody that the goals for the initial meeting had been fulfilled. All proposed activities and products were discussed and determined. The ADHER Initial Meeting draft minutes will be produced within three weeks and presented to the comments of all partners. The revised application form will be sent to all partners within three weeks as well by the coordinator. The feeling of the participants about the meeting, the social and cultural11 activities held in the organization of Atakum Adult Education Centre was positive. Everybody got the chance to express their feelings and ideas. The general idea was that this meeting was a good start on our way to achieve our goals proposed in the application form.
