Giggin Policy is an Erasmus+ project which started in January 2021. Due to corona, it was not possible to meet earlier. On the 17th of May, a delegation from the Netherlands, consisting of partners from De Friese Poort, Municipality of Leeuwarden and Learning Hub Friesland travelled to Ireland to finally meet the other partners physically. Project partners include Meath County Council (IE), Dundalk Institute of Technology (IE), Newry & Mourne (IE), KSPMC (LT), Chamber of Commerce (SP) and Educem (SP).
The Giggin’ Policy project is based on the view that young people are the source of tomorrow’s economy and should therefore take the lead in designing future strategies for regions. Giggin’ Policy is there to support, guide and help raise awareness about the effects around the Gig Economy. We do this by conducting an awareness campaign, setting up policy innovation and co-design labs and creating a Giggin’ Policy Pact.
During our meeting in Ireland, we conducted several workshops in which we all looked at how best to target the awareness of different audiences, how to set up a policy innovation lab and how to conclude a policy pact from different perspectives.
The first policy innovation co-design lab will be organised on the 13th of June. The theme is, exploring the Gig Economy. Are you or do you know students who would like to work as a gigger? Or do you want to know more about the project and the Gig Economy? Then come to Friese Poort in Sneek, Martiniplein 1 (Rabobank), third floor, on 13th of June. The programme starts at 13:00 and will end at 15:00 with a network meeting.
