The partnership met for the Kick-Off meeting in Athens between the 23rd and 24th of January 2023. This project of Mobilising Youth and Youth Service Talent through Immersive Co-design will consist of designing training courses and organising events for youth workers, and volunteers along with youth with fewer opportunities to co-design workshops and Co-Labs for future Community Leaders! This project will run for 2 years. 

The agenda for this meeting was to use ‘design thinking’ techniques to support the consortium to co-create the MYSTIC ‘Immersive Residential Programme’ (IRP).  The agenda was designed as a ‘mini IRP’, combining experiential activities with interactive co-creation workshops over two days. The TPM as a mini-IRP was an opportunity for partners to familiarise themselves with the local landscape in Miranda do Corvo.
