Fundatia EOS Romania (EOS) organised the final multiplier event of the Amelie project on 28 February 2023. The event was organised at Hotel Timișoara and was attended by more than 45 participants representing teachers and trainers from pre-university sector from Timis county and also by representatives of Timis County School Inspectorate and Timis Educational Corps Home.
The aim of the event was to inform teachers/trainers and stakeholders about the results obtained within the Amelie project, to encourage them to register on the Amelie platform and to go through the training materials / worksheets and through all resources available on the platform.
During the information sessions, participants had the chance to learn about: the Amelie course and the Amelie training platform, the worksheets developed within the project, the Manifesto of non-hostile communication, as well as about the Kind Speech day campaigns organised within the project, with a greater focus on the campaigns organized at the national level. The participants showed great interest in the information they received and paid special attention to the training methodology and the online platform.
The highlights of the event were related to the big number of participants that responded to the invitation and the interest manifested by them towards the topics presented during the event sessions.
The network of schools in Romania is constantly interested in using new resources and training approaches in their training activities. These kinds of resources are quite few in Romania, and representatives of schools emphasized the importance of media literacy resources /hate speech related resources for the education sector.
At the end of the event a dedicated session for discussion was initiated and participants had the chance to address a lot of questions related to training methodology, online platform and the experiences faced by the teachers during the pilot exercise.
