On the 11th of November 2016, the Multiplier Event E4 was organized in the context of our project ILA in the premises of the Cyprus Prison in Nicosia. The event was organized under the auspices of the honorary Minister of Justice and Public Order and it managed to engage a total number of 53 participants from different sectors: social workers, psychologists, lawyers, employers, prison staff and other relevant stakeholders.
The event was introduced with a speech by the director of the Prison, Ms Anna Aristotelous, and it was followed by a speech from the Minister, Mr Ionas Nicolaou. Then, the manager of Eurosuccess Consulting Mr Giorgos Giorgakis has presented the project as well as Outputs 1, 2, 3 and 4, offering to the participants a better understanding of the objectives and results of ILA Employability. The event was completed by a speech from the prison staff member, Mr Tasos Trattonikolas, who took part in the joint staff training event in Scotland and who also accompanied the young ex-offenders in the C2 activity in Barcelona. A video was also shown documenting the experience of the mobility in Barcelona, which also included testimonials by the young ex-offender who travelled to Barcelona from Cyprus.
