The annual meeting provides the one-time-of-the-year opportunity for AWoN practitioners, who are spread across Europe, to come together and reignite the sparks of connection and inspiration. Over the course of three days, participants engaged in mutual support, shared experiences, and discussed the next steps, all while nurturing a sense of community.
– It was a retreat, interconnectivity, celebrating our network. It brought new people to the network and celebrated existing ones, says Rikko Voorberg, director of the A World of Neighbours network.
– To see all of us, from countries all over Europe, become friends and renew our dedication to the important work we do, was emotional. The location of the centre, being surrounded by serene nature, added to the circle of trust.
