For the very first time, the Italian National Agency hosted the EuroPeers Annual Network Meeting that took place in Rome, between 23-26 September 2021.

It was a hybrid event that gathered 80 participants representing Austria, Belgium, Estonia, France, Finland, Germany, Latvia, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, the UK, and Italy. The event started on the 23rd of September 2021 with the arrival of the participants to Rome and some ice breaker activities.

The official welcome to Italy on the 24th of September 2021 was led by Lucia Abbinante, the Italian National Agency Director. 

Sharing Europe #ANM2021 agenda included lots of indoor and outdoor activities maintaining the hybrid format that fostered more inclusive, digital, and green-friendly participation.

Important topics which have been discussed were put into the following sessions: EuroPeers Blended Cultural Event, Showcase of good practices, the European Youth Event workshop (pilot version), Skills & Knowledge sharing, Living Library, Beyond EuroPeers, and Vision & Mission of the EuroPeers network. Each session was structured to guide the workgroups towards clarifying the values we stand for and new ideas we are aiming to transform into short and long-term projects.

To wrap it up properly:

Arrivederci da Italy – keep an eye on EuroPeer events, follow us on our socials, and see you next year!
