‘Setting the Pace for the Workshops’

In the framework of MYSEA Project, the Lebanese Development Network (LDN) organized a coordination meeting which gathered the management team, the trainers and the collaborating centers involved in the implementation of the Transversal Skills Training Package.

The meeting was divided into two parts. The first was dedicated to discuss the material with the trainers, whereas the second was intended to formulate with the centers the most appropriate means to execute the workshops.

The meeting was inaugurated by Amin Nehme, President of LDN and Senior Project Manager, who provided a brief presentation about the organization followed by an overview about MYSEA.

In his intervention, Nehme stressed the important role the modules play vis-à-vis the opportunity provided to the various stakeholders. He also noted that maintaining harmony among all parties in carrying out the different tasks and activities is the corner stone to efficiently achieve the project's objectives.

In turn, LDN’s Secretary General and Senior Financial Manager Samer Aoun provided a financial roundup about the procedures to be followed in this regard. Side meetings were held afterwards to finalize the processes and the related agreements.

Project Coordinator Rita Nassif addressed the audience with the specific requirements of the designated Work Package. Nassif explained the details pertaining to the outline, the content and the material.

Communication Coordinator Antoinette Moubarak presented the online system to be followed in terms of data, reporting and delivery of all needed documents.

Field Officer Johnny Jreish concluded the sessions with a display about the mapping of the centers, the participants’ selection criteria and the coordination process to be adopted on the technical level.

The meeting served as a forum to discuss the preparations for the upcoming training activities. It also provided a mechanism for the participants to develop a common and comprehensive approach for synchronization in order to ensure timely and effective operations.

MYSEA is an EU-funded project which aims at increasing the employability of youth, women and NEETs in the agri-food and waste management industries by developing training oriented to both sectors and strengthening local governance and sector-skills alliances between economic actors and TVET institutions to align the education curricula with the sectors’ needs.
