Kick-off meeting report:

Kick-off meeting of the multi-phase long-term KA2 project Digital vs. Corrupt took place in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana on the dates 31 January – 3 February 2024. Around 15 people, presidents and volunteers from different organizations gathered here to participate as partners in this thirty-month project to indicate the risks of corruption.

We stayed in the luxurious hotel Slon right in the city centre. The price of accommodation here included a sauna, wellness and gym, as well as a rich buffet breakfast. As for other meals, the organizer Štefan took us to great places that he himself likes. We were able to taste a real buffet of Slovenian delights, the oldest local pizza or a two-hour tasting of Georgian dishes.

On the day of arrival, we only checked in, went to our first dinner together, and then Štefan arranged for us the degustation of local wines. The next day we went together to the museum of the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984, where the guide took us through the entire history. After that, we went to the Youth Campus for intensive planning, where we presented our organizations and the activities we will do in the project. A long brainstorming about the overall project followed.

In the morning of the next day, we had a conference call with officials from the EU and the national agency of Slovenia, where we gradually resolved any organizational matters. After that, we went on a trip together to Lake Bled, which is located right in the Alps.

I thank EYCB for the trust in sending me to this project, as their representative, and at the same time I also thank EPEKA for the excellent preparation and organization.
