Dear friends and members of the ep. Network,

Welcome to the third Network update of this year. Time is running fast, but we’re trying to keep up! We’re constantly working on initiating new vibrant collaborations between members of our Network, relevant partners, supporters and practitioners. This way we contribute to creating new implementation opportunities and joining forces of regional and international players - the first promising plans are already visible but they’re still maturing - so stay tuned for the news coming up!

Additionally we’re continuing to not only integrate technical solutions in the Solutions Database, but  we are also starting to add up a pool of more comprehensive and well- established development projects that could serve as role- models to futures projects and will contribute lots of practical knowledge and in-field experiences to the network. You can find the first three projects of this category below.

More and more frequently we stumble over videos, progress reports, articles and interviews on the great developments of the all the projects in the “empowering people. Network” and we’re proud to be able to support and accompany them in one or the other way. However, we assume there’s a lot more information out there – so whenever you have any interesting news, please feel free to share them with us! We’re more than happy to listen and learn….
