Next refugee twinning meeting Jan 7

Last time we met we discussed several great projects. See the post of that meeting for more info.

Now I am about to revisit the camp in order to:

  1. Gather follow up evaluation data based on the 5 factors of well-being used in New Cross Connected Communities research so that I can write up the work and we can seek further funding
  2. Get permissions from those people in the video so we can use it more widely
  3. Progress the first two of the projects below that we feel is most ready for implementation

I really hope you can come along and share ideas, contribute new thoughts, bring this alive!
