On 21 January, the six European organisations participating in the Agroinclusion project, within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, held an online kick-off meeting to analyse and fine-tune the work plan and budget finally approved. Also, during the meeting the different partners presented their lines of work and experiences related to the thematic of the project.

Agroinclusion is coordinated by the Monte Mediterráneo Foundation (Spain) and involves reference organisations in Austria, Germany, Portugal, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Its aim is to establish a synergistic transnational partnership between organisations providing vocational training or working for the socio-professional inclusion of people with special needs in the organic farming sectors.

During the project (2020-2023) they will carry out the exchange of good practices, real experiences, methods, tools, training programmes, etc., in the fields of VET and inclusion, identifying needs and collecting good practices for their implementation in the sector.

The project partners are: Monte Mediterraneo Foundation (Spain), University College of Agricultural and Environmental Pedagogy Vienna (Austria), Lebenshilfe Ennstal (Austria), Lower Saxony Chamber of Agriculture (Germany), Wonderchapter (Portugal), Lišov Museum (Slovakia) and College and School of Agriculture (Czech Republic).
