Physical kick-off meeting in Khulna, workshops and trip to Chattogram

Representatives of the project team of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and Institute for Social-Ecological Research went on the kick-off trip to Bangladesh at the end of September. The main purpose was the official kick-off meeting with institutional and political partners at the large auditorium of Khulna University of Engineering and Technology on September 24th where the different local project teams finally met physically.

In the following days, the project delegation met with the various implementing and political partners in the region around Khulna to consolidate cooperation and coordinate the further course of the project.

Joint excursions and workshops gave the international project partners the opportunity to get to know each other better and to intensively extend the work in the working groups on site, which up to now has mainly been coordinated online. Part of the project team from Weimar then continued their journey to Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology to take part in official SCIP Plastics kick-off events and meet local partners.
