Beside the 3rd partner meeting in Vienna, in the last month yMIND has participated in several scientific forums of national scope and importance in Germany, which supported the dissemination and upscaling of the good practice models.
On 2 March 2018 yMIND offered a poster presentation at the “Berlin Workshop on Participatory Research”, hosted by the Catholic University of Applied Sciences Berlin. On 21-22 March 2018 yMIND participated with a presentation at the German National Public Health Congress “Armut und Gesundheitsamt 2018”, hosted by the technical University Berlin.
Next to that, the experiences of the participatory child-centred approach of yMIND in conducting focus groups with students on the themes of diversity and discrimination were acknowledged by a pilot study project of the German network PartNet. It develops internet tutorials on methods of participatory research. The first two videos have been just launched in German language that allow insights from the perspective of practitioners in the role that focus groups play in participatory research and development processes: See the Teaser here , for the Film click here (using for both password PartNet).
