“Helping the Uneducated, Unemployed and Refugees in Lebanon”
On April 20-21, 2021, partners of the ENI CBC MED projects INVESTMED and MYSEA have met with MoreThanAJob Lebanese partner Business Consultancy and Training Services (BCTS) via Zoom platform to launch a consultation towards initiatives on synergies and complementarities to achieve their common goal: to help the uneducated, unemployed and refugees in the Lebanese community.
The main results of the meeting can be summarized as follows:
It was clarified that this meeting should be seen as an opportunity to discuss with other networks in order to formulate concrete steps to organize/advance their collaborations and provide feedback to each other in view of responding to the consultation.
The participants formulated concrete proposals for extending/strengthening collaboration with others. A number of concrete ideas were recorded in this regard. In addition, participants agreed that such ‘spaces’ for discussion need to be established to help partnerships reach across sectors, clusters and areas and contribute to the reform of the partnership landscape in an inclusive way.
The representatives of each project had the opportunity to know each other and to present their projects. Each representatives’ member got a better understanding of the priorities, objectives, work package, and the progress of each project.
