LAUNCH OF ACTIVITIES PROPOSED UNDER THE SuCCeS PROJECT – VISIT BY OUR ITALIAN PARTNERS IN DECEMBER 2017
Looking back at the launch day on the 8th December 2017 in Saint-Paul de Vence
The public launch of a collaborative project is always a memorable moment not only in the life of the project but also in terms of strengthening ties between the partners.
The launch day cemented the very first official gathering between the Italian contingency and the Steering Committee and enabled bonds of friendship and trust to be created, bonds that will go on to develop and deepen over time as the project advances. A 100-strong delegation of elected officials, professionals, locals and school children from Ceresole came to Saint-Paul de Vence on this auspicious day.
