The Transnational Project Meeting has been led by Halil Yavuz who is a representative of LIDOSK.

Later on, the project co-ordinator Aleksandrs Klavins joined the meeting virtually via ZOOM from Latvia and added more information about the good practices in their nation that Daniela Leiskalne spoke about previously. Besides, Aleksandrs Klavins gave more detailed information about the project dissemination agenda to the partner organisations of the project. In relation to the project he offered some suggestions about the facebook group updates. Moreover, he clarified the dissemination of the project in terms of the responsibilities of partner organisations. For example, Romanian representatives are supposed to carry out their dissemination activities in September and specifically as it is very important to be visible in the social media the social visibility activities on facebook are supposed to be focused, as well. After a month Latvian representatives should carry out their dissemination activities in October. During the meeting each country agreed on holding offline dissemination activities with the local target group and youth. 

The Transnational Project Meeting started at 10.00am. One of the topics on the second day was the mobility dates which were selected with the consensus of the partner organizations exactly between 24 and 30 November. In this mobility the number of participants are decided as five youngsters and one group leader, in total six participants per partner organization. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic effects some participants from some countries, especially Turkey, are having trouble at the borders of Latvia. That is why in order not to face any kind of problems during arrival and departure from the country it is agreed that the necessary requirements and the conditions should be searched and reported. At the same time the invitation letters should be delivered to the participants no later than two weeks after they are selected and announced.

Besides, all the partner organizations have agreed that the project website should be developed and updated frequently. At the same time all the participants agreed to use facebook as a tool to keep the datas and share the datas with the stakeholders or to the target audiences. The partner organizations became aware of the importance of the facebook usage and all the partner organisations in the meeting have agreed to use it for the benefit of the project development through sharing all the meeting pictures, meeting outputs, dissemination activities and etcetera. Moreover, it is also decided that the necessary research for the state-of-art report should be started. The previous research on stakeholders, target groups, best practices and best practices of the stakeholders as well as psychology topics have been discussed and it has been decided that the research on the new practices for youth should be conducted by all the partner organisations. On the other hand, each partner organization agreed to search, plan and implement a special educational format for the target group, for dyslexic individuals and this format will be a guideline for the youth workers who are going to work with our target group which is dyslexic individuals. Indeed, each partner organization agreed that they will develop a training methodology for the target group and will apply this methodology in Latvia for a day. As the last topic of the day, the partner organizations made a review on the first and the second day's topic in the Transnational Project Meeting that has been held in Antalya and each participant from each partner organization has received their certificate at the end of the meeting.
