1. Engagement strategy. We are having some difficulty recruiting local connectors and social media managers. Stand by while we rethink some issues, and give any feedback or ideas you might have here. Otherwise, Noemi will be in touch with news early next week.
We will need to re-draft the call for Local Connectors and have a short compelling version suitable for translation and sharing with the networks in each country.
2. Mapping and outreach to online groups: mapping now finalized here. Missing the Polish ones cc @natalia_skoczylas
In particular, the Cultural Center Prague and the Integration Center are hubs and so they organise events, and are connected with other organisations. Jiri will start meeting people and tell them about the project personally. How can we reach those groups though? At the latest, we’ll do it when we have the new recruits.
For the German mapping, Richard discovered many groups on the meetup.com platform, some of whom have other websites/ fb group; in Germany Meetup is very Berlin centric, but worth the look.
NB: those interested in the German language conversations should make personal effort to reach out - it’s not a given that Edgeryders has capacity to go through the list.
Noticing the differences between the |German and British system - should immigrants pay in the system? should they be covered?
3. Create individual stories by each team member, in our languages. We agreed to do this by Monday and upload them on the forum. Jiri is going to write for health theme, Richard about social care, and Maria (??).
