START project workshop

We began 2019 with new joint initiative – START that gathers six CSO’s networks for children from six countries in the Wider Black Sea region.

START project intends to support the civil society efforts in advocacy activities and awareness raising on importance of early childhood education and care (ECEC) in the region. One of the first activities are dedicated to the online platform that will be launched online in a few months and will serve as a regional knowledge and best practices hub for parents and practitioners who work with children.

On May 16th and 17th we held a workshop, with 15 representatives and ECEC experts from our partner countries, on communication and storytelling about how to make communication more efficient and what makes good stories engaging.
