The Genesis Programme on Erasmus+ Learning Exchange
In January 2019, Claire Gleeson, Development Officer (North Louth) represented The Genesis Programme on the PINN project (Proactive International Network for Newborn and Young Children) learning exchange trip to Coimbra, Portugal.
The Erasmus+ funded trip organised by the Prevention and Early Intervention Network (PEIN) was also attended by colleagues Hazel Murphy of YoungBallymun and Orla Tuohy of Lifestart Foundation/Tusla along with partner organisations from Portugal, Norway and the Netherlands.
The three day event allowed participants the opportunity to share best practice and to visit prevention and early intervention sites. On the final day, Claire, Hazel and Orla presented on the work of their respective organisations to over 100 attendees at a conference organised by the University of Coimbra.
We look forward to the partner organisations visiting as part of the PINN project exchange to Ireland planned for 2020.
