23. Face to Face Transnational Partners Meeting

Thessaloniki, Greece | 5 – 6/09/2022

After a fruitful year of continuous and high-quality work among an excellent consortium of expert partners on the thematic area of the protection and security in places of worship, the 2nd PROSECUW face-to-face Transnational Partners Meeting, took place on the 5th and 6th September 2022, in Thessaloniki, Greece, in order to constructively discuss the latest updates of the project and effectively coordinate on the upcoming tasks and activities. The consortium, during this last year of the project, will work on the PROSECUW Hub, will finalise the e-platform containing the specialised training course on the protection and security for places of worship, for religious leaders, security agents and the local authorities and will deliver the trainings, piloting and documentary screenings to our stakeholders and target groups.

The meeting was successfully completed and was followed by a specialised guided tour by CEMES external collaborator Dr Maria Kyriakidou, who guided us through an interesting tour through the most significant places of worship within the walled old city center of Thessaloniki, all of them with an important value when it comes to our religious, historical and cultural heritage.

Moreover, as part of the visit to Thessaloniki, our partner CEMES organised various meeting with stakeholders and target groups, among other the Head of the Police Department in Greece, on terrorism and security, a meeting with the Jewish community of Thessaloniki, as well as a presentation of the PROSECUW project at the Kavala Summer School of the American College of Thessaloniki
