From the 3rd to the 5th of November, members of Nexes Interculturals have participated in the final evaluation of The Strategies for youth SSE Entrepreneurship Development and Social impact  (SSEds) project and the final event, “IMP’ACT: From Dreamers to changemakers”.

The first day was focused on the final evaluation of the two years’ project SSEds. Here it was possible to construct a line of time where the multiple participants align the different phases of the project. After, was made collaborative feedback of different areas of the project as management, outputs, target group, dissemination among others. The second day was divided into two major parts. During the morning the group discussed the next steps of the project. The efforts of the afternoon were concentrated on planning the final event.

The final event took place at the Open Innovation Center of Torino, on November 5th. After a first presentation of the three outputs “Training Module”, “Toolbox” and “IMP’ACT tool”, the participants were divided in 3 different groups where they were able to explore the outputs, make questions and suggestions. In the second part they made a world cafe, where four questions were presented and discussed in fast speeding groups: “Tools don’t change the world, we need something else”, “Measurement has no value if it’s not scientific!”, “These productions are exclusively for young people”, “Assessing social impact is only good for social washing.”. At the final, there was a debriefing where it was possible to share the different points of view of the participants.

The evaluation took place in Torino, Italy. Here the members of the partnership from Spain (Nexes Interculturals, CooperaSec), Italy (Stranaidea, Confcooperative Piemonte Nord), Greece (Citizens In Action) and France (Kaléido’scop, Unis Cité Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes)  got the opportunity to meet each other after one year working exclusively online. It was possible to build an extraordinary energy of listening and supporting between the group. We would like to thank Stranaidea, the host of this activity, and all the facilitators and the participants for the work done during these three days.
