2. Two preparatory meetings (1 day each) before each exchange visit will be conducted in each participating country by the Partner Organisation with the youth participants. The meetings will introduce participants to the project, gather their expectations and input for the outputs and for the exchange visits, determine which input each participant will give throughout the project based on their prior experience, develop a schedule for participants’ input, form working groups for the development of follow-up projects and plan logistical issues of the exchange visit. The second preparatory meeting will further collect participants’ feedback on the first exchange visit.
3. Development of concepts for follow-up projects and other outputs. Participants will develop concepts for follow-up projects as part of this project and will continue working on their projects after the termination of EChange.02. They will also contribute to other outputs that participants jointly decide on.
