In the beginning of October 2022, the team of NASO had the pleasure to start participating in a new project CO-RESP (COmmunity REsilience through Social Procurement). The CO-RESP project will aim to maximize the use of SRPP (Socially Responsible Public Procurement) by organising a Social Economy Mission (WP2), bringing together all relevant stakeholders, favouring the exchange of good practices & enhancing inter-regional
collaboration between Social Economy actors and regional/local authorities. Based on the peer-to-peer learning experience, local authorities involved in the project will then draft Local Action Plans (WP3) aiming at maximising the use of SRPP at the local level. In conclusion, a Recommendation for replications document (WP4) will be produced to facilitate and ensure the replicability of the project results.
NASO will play major role in the WP5 by managing one of the most important project tasks – Communication and dissemination activities. Our team will take care of raising public awareness, tools and activities related to external communications; visual identity and branding; key messages relevant to each target audience; key performance indicators and procedures for monitoring and evaluating external communication activities and etc. Our team has already started preparing detailed action plan and logo suggestions, so that we can properly present the project to the wider audience though all social media platforms.
The kick-off meeting which took place on the 6th of October was an online event and excellent opportunity for all project partners to present their organizations and tasks, relevant to the project work packages. The leading organization is NASO`s long-term partner EASPD, followed by ZfSW – Zentrum für Sozialwirtschaft GmbH (Austria), EUROPEAN CONFEDERATION OF INCLUSIVE ENTERPRISES (EUCIE – France), Dobrich Municipality (Bulgaria), Stadtgemeinde Gleisdorf (Austria), Ayuntamiento de Marina de Cudeyo (Spain).
