PERMAGOV Kick-off Meeting 21-23 March 2023

The Sea is the Limit – New Project for Folkecenter!

As you probably have read in our previous newsletter, Folkecenter is now part of a new European project called Permagov.

After a first online kick-off meeting which took place in January, last week (21-23 March) we had the chance to join the official kick-off meeting, which took place in Wageningen (the Netherlands). It was very nice to be in presence again, after so long time collaborating online.
