One of the main consequences of prolonged water shortage in the countries that participate in the consortium (especially the Mediterranean countries) is the intermittent water supply that finds an increasing % of the population satisfying their potable and cooking needs with previously stored (large plastic deposits) and packaged (plastic bottles) water. In 2009, 60-75% of the total volume of drinking-water daily consumed by Cypriot residents in 250 households of Nicosia, Cyprus was coming from bottled water (Makris et al. preliminary data). Bottled water for the sake of this project is defined as packaged water in bottles of various volumes, i.e., from 0.3 up to 19L large plastic containers used in drinking-water dispensers. Bottled water consumption at home or at work is increasing for all the partner countries, especially in areas of these countries that prolonged droughts and intermittent water supplies or home tap water quality complaints have shifted citizens’ preference to bottled water. The number of enterprises dealing with production and distribution of bottled water in urban areas has grown dramatically over the past 10 years in the partner countries. Bottled water enterprises are charged with the responsibility to deliver excellent quality’s drinking-water for homeowners or more recently to employees of private small businesses, organizations (Universities), large corporations (banks, etc.). Complaints about deteriorated bottled water quality at the point of use by customers do exist, but enterprises’ solutions are more temporary than actual long-term solutions, compromising their marketability and accountability to their customers at some point in time
The professionals in the forest sector in the EU countries, and specifically the Mediterranean countries that participate in this consortium (Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Spain, Portugal), while they have the necessary theoretical background, very often do not have the practical skills and knowledge to apply it. DRYMOS project aims to contribute to the improvement of the training of forest professionals by offering them complete, qualitative, results-oriented and practice-oriented learning contents which will be delivered through the use of a blended learning method that would combine e-learning and face-to-face seminars. The e-learning contents and training methodology will be transferred from countr
According to data from the Council of Europe (“Towards quality education for Roma children: transition from early childhood to primary education”, DGIV/EDU/ROM(2007)5), 50% of the Roma children around Europe do not complete their primary education. Some of the reasons that educational research has pointed out in order to explain this phenomenon are that during the child’s early years at home, Roma parents may often lack information and parenting skills to support their children’s language and social development (http://www.ecdgroup.com/pdfs/Preventing-Social-Exclusion.pdf), that the expectations from education are very low, that the social environment in which the children live is characterized by an horizontal way of learning without the rigid school rules, that the oral basis of the language and the absence of books make the school a very different and strange environment for the Roma children (Charoula Stathopoulou, “Roma students at school”, 2005) etc. All these research data highlight the fact that one of the major factors that contribute to the early school leaving of the Roma children is the lack of the proper preparation. Since the school environment is very different from the environment they have been used to live in, they cannot be integrated and therefore the leave the school early.
Action Synergy is participating as a partner in the Di-XL project, which is coordinated by Baltic Bright from Latvia and which aims to create a robust model of dissemination and exploitation of LLP results through libraries.
