Last October 18th, partner Q-PLAN International organized a Co-Design workshop, in Thessaloniki, at OK! Thess.

The co-desing workshop focused on learners’ needs, as expressed by educators and mentors to develop guidelines for education according to expressed needs.

The workshop used the effective “Mind map” tool, deriving from the Design Thinking methodology, allowing the regional CoP members to visually structure their thoughts and concepts in given sub-themes (education goals, motives, most appropriate training approaches, most frequent skills needed in Bioeconomy Job Profiles).
As the facilitator, Q-PLAN led the CoP through co-designing guidelines to create education pathways for bioeconomy jobs.

The co-design workshop was held in Greek and will be followed by a second workshop to be organized in early November.
