#Evolve: the IVSolution
Training and Capacity building, the Evolution for the IVS movement
Evolve seeks to enable exchange and develop new cooperation between CCIVS members and invited guests. In face of declining numbers of volunteers, it offers a space to build new partnerships, to further develop local actions and to develop key competencies to strengthen organisational structure. The application is built upon the CBY KA2 –STEPS which made an analysis of the training needs of IVS organisations.
The first phase of the project is dedicated to a detailed planning and development of the overall project. It will also ensure the mapping of the best tools for the follow -up process, and will develop the toolkits for the trainings. The team will look at the results of the STEPs project and the work of the ‘What is our IVS’ working group (an internal working group set up to look at issues in the network), based on this information, and bringing additional information from the networks themselves the team will work on building a knowledge management system and support system for the members which can be proposed to the Conference.
The toolkits will be drafted and further improved during the trainings with expert input.
The steering team meeting will take place in the two days prior to the Conference.
