Zeitgeist in the Pyrenees

February 2nd - 5th, 2011 Early February, Zeitgeist had its second meeting - a first real workshop on some of the themes of the project. For this, 25 people joined in Catalonia for an intensive two-day session. After staying in Hotel Campus at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (which is a training facility for young adults entering the hotel and restaurant business) we got detailed presentations...

Zeitgeist “rocks” for the 1st time, between megaliths

September 14th -17th, 2010 In a productive two-day meeting, representatives of all six partners and of EXARC jointly made a detailed work program how to ‘do what we promised Brussels’. We were happy to have our application accepted, but now it comes down on us ourselves!

Our two Grundtvig Learning Partnerships got accepted

Unfortunately, our two Italian members were left out, probably because the number of Italian applicants in general was far more than in any other country. We are sorry to lose a good specialist and an experienced museum in this project, but will try other ways of cooperation with them...

This seems like a large group, but when initially all EXARC members were asked if they were interested, no less than 25 had responded...

The potential of the Grundtvig

At a formal EU meeting in Amsterdam, EXARC understood the potential of the Grundtvig adult learning programme for its members. This EU cooperation programme is much smaller and more easy to implement than the larger Culture or Interreg projects are. Many members were interested and this subject will be followed up in 2010.
