The ECO-Motive project was presented at the IKSZT conference on 25 September 2015 in Budapest. The Integrated Community Facility Program (IKSZT) includes approx. 1000 settlements with less than 5000 inhabitants in Hungary, where multifunctional community centers operate. During the discussion experiences of local development projects were shared with the participation of stakeholder NGOs with rural development and social inclusion aims.
GAK Nonprofit Public Utility organised the second focusgroup meeting in September. The participants are working with disadvantaged people - local governments, various organisations, and in frame of this kind of meetings they share with us their precious experiencies. This time the main questions were, what are the most useful motivation and educational methods they use, and how to find the suitable trainers.
