Final Conference of the EmpAct Project in Cyprus

The event was addressed to carefully selected and targeted stakeholders to bring together adults (50+), experts, professionals and trainers to better promote the project and ensuring their participation in the sustainability of the project. The overall aim is to foster communication between the two sides and the uptake of the use of the One Shop Portal.

It was attended by 30 participants, representing all targeted stakeholders, including: Ministry of Education and Culture, Social Partners, Ministry of Health, NGOs (Pankyprian Movement Equal Rights – Equal Responsibilites, CARITAS), Representative of Embassy of Sweden, Representatives of Municipalities and Educational Institutions.

In view of engaging participants and making the most of their presence, EmpAct’s held an event of 2,5 hours, including a theoretical part, ie. the presenting the EmpAct project and tools/ training courses, and complemented by an interactive part, ie. presenting EmpAct’s new innovative “One Shop Portal’’ tool.

In particular, following a warm welcome by the organizers (Mr. Konstantinos Kloudas), the EmpAct project and training courses were presented in detail, focusing mainly in One Stop Shop Portal (facilitator: Mrs Irene Smeraidou and Elpida Christou), while questions by the participants were addressed.

The reception after the completion of the EmpAct project, presented another opportunity for further discussion on the One Stop Shop Portal and its impact, other business-related matters and cooperation, while participants shared a common realization that, in these difficult periods, upskilling adults over 50+ may be achieved only through mutually educational synergies and networks.
