Andrew Johansson and Guido Sechi in cooperation with Pēteris Šķiņķis are introducing in different aspects of a territorial assessment: Society, Identity, Networking and Communication, Economy, Public Services – collaboration and support schemes, Infrastructural Development, Housing, etc. The workshop will elaborate schemes and functions of how the communities may assess their environment and set an assessment plan, following the communities’ expectations and needs. The assessment plan will be carried out during spring break and monitored by a team of experts. The evaluation of the training program will pay specifically attention to this period. Both, monitoring and evaluation will take place at location.
