Kick-off meeting: Nowa Cerkiew – Chojnice, 25 – 27.11.2018
The first activity of the project realization was the inaugural meeting of the project coordinators (Kick-off meeting) organized by the Primary School of the 18th Pomeranian Cavalry Regiment in Nowa Cerkiew, and the hosting person was the School Director, Mrs. Alicja Kaminska. During the meeting, each of the partners presented the profile, their school and the vision of its participation in the project. The project leader presented the financial rules and the method of spending and accounting for funds. The structure of project activities and the way of achieving the goals assumed in the project were discussed. One of the most important findings of this meeting was the decision to slightly adjust the structure of project activities consisting in transforming 4 longer (10-day) project activities into 5 shorter (7-day) activities devoted to various topics of first aid and life protection.
During the meeting, the coordinators met with the Head of the Chojnice Commune – the school’s managing body, where they discussed the impact of the project on the local environment and its important role in the education of young people. They also visited the areas damaged by the storm, where they discussed the significance of the project for unexpected natural disasters. This part of the program was enriched with a visit to a seed extractor, where participants had the opportunity to learn about this extremely interesting natural and production process. An important element of the meeting was also a visit to the potentially envisaged sites for the implementation of an educational program for young people: the school facility in Nowa Cerkiew, where the hosts presented an interesting Memorial Chamber of the Battle of Krojanty, the water sports center in Charzykowy and the recreational complex in Fojutów. The visit was completed with a visit to the city of Chojnice, rich in interesting architectural objects, and an integration dinner.
