From October 5th to October 7th, the Transnational Project Meeting of the MUST-a-Lab project took place in Fuenlabrada, Spain, in parallel with a workshop devoted to local policy-makers of the partner cities. The six European Municipalities taking part in the project presented to the partners their best practices and previous inclusive experiences with vulnerable people and, more precisely, asylum seekers and migrants.
Not only the presentations motivated and enriched the exchange within the consortium, but also set a starting point for the upcoming developments of MUST-a-Lab. The meeting was in fact a great opportunity for all partners to work together on the implementation of the next steps of the project.
As a better and improved involvement of civil society in the designing process of local policies is crucial to develop inclusive policy making, the active engagement of local councilors during the international workshop proved the thorough commitment of the 6 municipalities to MUST-a-Lab.
Stay tuned for more updates, Policy Labs are coming! If you want to share your ideas or if you want to learn more about the projects, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (the project website is coming soon!).
