LAST MEETING IN SPAIN
Probably this has been the most special meeting because it was the last one. All the participants in the Grundtvig project made friends and we lived marvellous experiences during these years, and maybe this is the reason by which this meeting went very successful for everybody.
Maybe, this has been the most funny experience because we have had the possibility to know a different animal that can be used in animal assisted intervention: the dolphins.
We visited the sea museum in Klaipeda-Lithuania and we played with some of the dolphins,we saw a marvellous show with them, visited an amazing facilities designated for therapy with this animals and we participated in an international conference about animal assisted intervention.
In this trip, some students from Spain and Lithuania had other program while we had the meeting project and conference, which went very well organized and adapted to the students.
Since 13th to 17th of Mayo 2015 Lithuania went our home. A marvellous country and lovely people as hosts. We´ll return.
One year later to start our project all of us travelled to Romania, between 8th and 12th of October of 2014. These days we have had the possibility to assist an international conference about animal assisted therapy and there, we have showed our methodologies about AAT, not only in our institutions but also in our learning partnership. Our hosts have organized an amazing meeting in which we have seen therapy sessions with horses, nice places and we enjoyed sharing our experiences with other professionals. Thanks for this experience.
We have had some meetings with people who is working with dogs in that country, and we have known how the estonian partners work with horses. It has been a very interesting experience and all of us have enjoyed so much.
Hungary went our destination the last week of may. Again, 7 countries of the association had a fantastic meeting in Szentes. From Spain and Romania travelled students with the teachers, and all of them enjoyed so much with the different activities. We visited different places and we saw many interesting things. We saw AAT with horses and dogs and we could try with horses. The hosts marvellous. Next meeting in Estonia in the middle of july.
Our second meeting went in Cambridge (UK) last month of January. Our hosts went marvellous. We visited the city, we had the opportunity to visit an special school and there we saw AAA with differents animals (dogs, birds, snakes...) It went very interesting.
6 countries was represented there, only Italy couldn´t travel to UK. We continued organizing our handbook and we decided our logo. Next meeting in Hungary.
First meeting went in Vicenza (Italy), between 28-30 October 2013. La tela di Carlota went our host partner. We have worked hard for 2 days and the last day we visited Venice.
We have decided which tasks will do each partner about handbook that we´ll prepare in the first part of the project and we have talked about our institutions. Evaluation, activities and the next meetings are another things about we have spoken during these days.
Estonia, Lithuania, Hungary, Romania, UK, Spain and Italy are members of this learning partnership, and all the countries have been represented in this meeting.
