1st STATUS Workshop in Temerin

The first STATUS workshop was held in the offices of the Agency for the development of Temerin Municipality, between 21 - 23 November 2013.

The aim of the first day of the workshop was to familiarise the stakeholders with the overall aims of the STATUS project, to introduce to the summoned representatives of stakeholders the work that has been done during the previous months in the project, to present them the workshop methodology and the workshop agenda and to open a discussion about the work that needs to be done in the coming days, weeks and months. The second and third days of the workshop were more focused.

The participants were divided into thematic groups - workgroups - and began working out and discussing the issues that are specific for the narrower areas of natural environment, mobility and accessibility, business environment etc. The first STATUS workshop in Temerin was concluded with the common conclusion that the participative process is promising, creative, fun and stimulating. The participants agreed that more work needs to be done in preparing the second workshop and that we have to include more stakeholders in the process.
