The Kick-off meeting of the project was held in Strumyani, Bulgaria in the period  7-9 March 2018, where representatives of the 5 European partners gathered to lay the foundation of the network, the rules and principles for management, coordination, communication, evaluation and dissemination.
Furthermore, the partners discussed the possible ways for raising awareness of the importance of the preservation of heritage and  tools, policies and instruments for facilitating citizens’ involvement through solidarity and voluntary action. The project also foresees the development of the “Solidarity of the Future” white paper to be presented to European, national and local decision makers in order to initiate policy reform for better formal recognition and validation of voluntary service as a valid working/training experience.
The project joins five small European towns creating Network of Towns – Municipality of Strumyani, Bulgaria; Municipality of Agia, Greece; Naxxar Local Council, Malta, Municipality of Novo mesto, Slovenia and Municipality of Caltanissetta, Italy and Association EUni Partners, Bulgaria.
