Seminar on International Project Development, 4-11 September 2009
Estonian, Latvian, Polish, German and Dutch partner organizations lived and worked together for one week on sailing ship the Lovis, as a follow-up from the Moving Baltic Sea project 2008. During the first ‘organizational speed dating day’, the participants ‘dated’ in order to create new project ideas and look for new ways of cooperation between the different on-board organizations. The outcomes of this day were used throughout the rest of the seminar in the daily workshops that all participants gave and attended. These workshops addressed different aspects of international project development, such as practical exercises in international sponsoring and fundraising, how to benefit from international creative platforms, how to develop a project concept etc.
The intensive program was alternated with a few hours of sailing every day. The participants had a fruitful exchange in experiences, created common project ideas and strengthened the network. The last evening, the international crew arrived in Hamburg harbour, where we held our public film screening “Segelflimmern”. Around four hundred visitors came to enjoy the international short films, projected on the main sail of the Lovis.
