The Emphasys team disseminated the project using all the relevant material that were designed for the needs of the fair, such as banners, leaflets presentations, petition lists etc. It is important to note that a Petition in relation to the promotion of the main aims of the ‘UPSKILLEAD’ project was initiated which will be an ongoing activity until the end of the project which can be implemented by other partners as well. A great number of signatures were collected as part of the Petition which is shown below.
Several important stakeholders, key people and official bodies, as well as parents, teenagers, teachers, youth workers and many others visited Emphasys’ booth and were informed about the ‘UPSKILLEAD’ project’s aims, objectives, products and expected outcomes.
