September Newsletter 2016

2016 09 19

Dear Nightingale friends,
hopefully you all have had a nice relaxing summer and are  all are back with lot of energy.
As decided in Reykjavik one partner each will take care and write our Newsletter. This month it is

Nightingale Tarragona ( Proyecto Ruiseñor), Spain

The Nightinpicture-pr-tarragonagale Year is starting and we couldn’t be more exited! We are going to carry out the project in three new places this year. That makes us extremely proud because to expand the Nightingale Project Tarragona was one of our main goals!

Last year mentor-mentee pairs went to the library, the cinema, the beach… They baked cookies, made origami and visited museums. On the last day, they went to the Jungle Trek, a theme park, and they had such a great time!
This year we hope that the project will go as well as last year and it is our wish to have more mentor-mentee pairs join us.!

A bachelor thesis

We would like to introduce Morgan Deumiers interesting bachelor thesis. He has been mentor three times, in Malmö and is now working as coordinator. He was awarded for the best thesis this year at his course.

Morgan is using Bourdieu’s sociological perspective, to examining how mentoring may strengthen the mentors’ and mentees’ social and cultural capitals.

The result shows that mentors’ and mentees’ cultural capitals —linguistic capital, know-how, and knowledge — have been exchanged and strengthened. But there are also more interesting results. Please click here to read more.

Next Conference

We are happy to inform you that next conference will be held in Barcelona in June.


The webpage is updated, a lot of links to member’s webpages was not correct. However there were some pages that could not be found so please check it yourselves and let Carina know.

The board

have had it´s first meeting. You can find the Minutes on the webpage.

We want to  encourage you all to cooperate and have contact. As we decided in Reykjavik at our network meeting members should have contact with each other about “Mentoring-ideas worth spreading”

The App

Unfortunately the app is not available yet. The team that worked with the app is no longer working with the organization  so  it will not be possible to use it now in October as earlier planned. We hope we will get more news about it soon.

Do not forget to send the Annual Report!

A reminder to partners who have not send the Annual Report to Carina. Please do so. It is important to be able to compile relevant data and later disseminate it.
