EPM ANNUAL GENRAL MEETING

11th-16th December 2005

 

Ideas so far

 

Short presentation of each partner school and participants

Each representing partner give detailed information on activities and what/how they have contributed towards the EPM

 

Partners taking part in the meeting to make some presentations about specific subjects of interest. In that each individual’s interests should be broadly known and some working groups could be set up in the participating schools. We could work around the subjects of common interest with the goal of having reached to some final products when we’ll meet again in spring. It’s evident that all these products could be published in EPM making the scope of our magazine much broader. (Greek proposal)

 

What have we achieved so far and how do we improve?

Workshop – Held by Angelo and Tsvetan?

 

Session about the history of EPM

The position of the EPM magazine in the present and role/aspirations for the future
