thankyou languages

Dear Nightingale friends,

first of all thank you for your participation and engagement in the network meeting and at the Conference. Especially big thank to the Iceland team who arranged everything. I am so happy that so many parters could come.

Björk has now uploaded a film from the Conference, so you can revisit the conference or see it for the first time if you missed it! There you can also find powerpoint presentations and some nice photos from our network meeting and the guided tour. You will find everything on the Conference blog.

The Minutes from the network meeting is now also uploaded where all documents from our network meeting are available.

You will also find photos (on the Network meeting page) from our network meeting, guided tour and from network dinner etc. Thank you Hans Björstad for all photos!

The wonderful film from Austria is also uploaded at the Network page. In Malmö we have also uploaded it on our homepage and Facebook account.

Next Conference 

We are very happy to announce that next Conference will be held in Barcelona!
The Barcelona team want to arrange it in first or second week in June. More details will of course come later.

But we are so sad to announce once again that Växjö will finish.

The Malmö team have however decided to write  a  document to Håkan to support him and his team, which he can  forward to local politicians. We also hope all partners in the Network can be signed this document.

News from partners

Nightingale San Sebastian, Spain
Nightingale Donostia- San Sebastián has taken part in different activities from the cultural life in Donostia-San Sebastián. The group had the chance to discover what lies behind the visible ocean life at the Aquarium of Donostia, finding out what is going on where the regular visitor cannot tread: how the animals are fed, some creatures yet to be exhibited, etc. It was amazing!
Furthermore, a guided tour of San Sebastian’s Anoeta Stadium, home to the local football club, was offered to the participants, and they enjoyed it so much!
