CODEMI - Empowering disadvantaged communities through coding and digital entrepreneurship: Partners Meeting

On the 8th and the 9th of May 2022, we had the partners’ meeting for CODEMI - Empowering disadvantaged communities through coding and digital entrepreneurship in Athens, Greece, to ensure the high quality of this project and further develop our partnership with the partnering organisations. The KA220 Project organisations, Action Community Estonia MTÜ (Estonia), in partnership with GEYC (Romania), Réseau Solidaire et Participatif (France) and Social Hacker (Greece) discussed among themselves and concluded how the overall program will be implemented, clarified the project’s topic, gave updates on their progress, and established the deadlines for the modules, translations as well as for the next trainings and meetings.

GEYC was represented in this meeting by Diana Ioniță, Head of Digital and the coordinator of this project on behalf of GEYC, Eugenia-Mihaela Miulescu, management trainee at GEYC and Borcsa Hunor-Mihály, Project Management Assistant for CODEMI.

At the end of June, the calls for the participants will be launched in all four participating countries. The content of the project will be translated in seven languages to also target ethnic minorities in the participating countries. GEYC will be translating the content to Romanian and Hungarian and will also be responsible for the coaching and mentoring of the participants during the project. 

The specific objectives of this project are:

  • Strengthening the already existing network of organisations working with digital education and enabling the exchange of good-case practices, capitalising on the different perspectives; ideas that each partner can contribute with.
  • Raising the efficiency of the hiring processes of the educational programs’ graduates, by building cooperation with different actors in the fields such as corporates and investing in practical employability skills.
  • Amending the educational materials already taught (curriculum, accredited courses, ICDL certification) in order to foster & ensure employability, socio-educational and personal development.
  • Sharing the produced materials and practices among the consortium’s partners and other organisations, as well.
  • Assessing the quality, impact and relevance of the non-formal education methods that will be used in the classroom, in the coding programs.
