What is a Life Worth Living and how do we want to embrace the topics and open questions of the brand-new project LIFE as partner organizations?  

On the 4th of September, coordinated by North Consulting (IS), representatives from University of Iceland (IS), CSC Danilo Dolci (IT), National Management School (BG), Djapo (BL), Blue Room Innovation (SP) and KMOP (GR) met in Bulgaria in the lovely mountainy area of Bansko to get to know each other face to face and start shared reflection and planning.  

The Transnational Partner Meeting of the project Life Worth Living – Caring for our educators and principals (Erasmus + KA2 – School) was a fruitful moment to stop and think about the real meaning that the project has for each of the partners involved and to clarify roles and methods that each can contribute as expertise.  

This is an ambitious project in that it goes deeply into many important and essential life questions with the aim to care for the well-being of teachers and school directors. As such, the partners worked thoughtfully together to understand the best way to accomplish the intended impact both with and for this target group. 

During the meeting, space was given to the planning of the national and international retreats, which are at the core of the implementation of the project: each partner organization will plan and host two 2-day retreats with 12 participants each in which the participants address fundamental life questions and discern for themselves what is a flourishing life. Each country will host one retreat in the months of January/February and one in the months of April/May. The final international retreat, which will bring together all of the participants, will take place in Belgium in October ’24.  

This first TPM was interesting, enriching and created a strong foundation for all the upcoming months working together as an international group.  

If you are a teacher or a principal, residing in any of the partner countries, and you want to know more about how you can take part in the LIFE project, please visit the call for application page on the site.
