The online discussion involved directly more than 79 participants and were viewed from more than 600 audience.

The facilitation process for exchange of good practices was implemented in the period of quarantine due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Therefore, we had intention to have dynamic in the activities and we have implemented two podcasts. One of the podcasts was on the topic "Social distancing and distrust" with prof. Katerina Kolozova.

The second podcast was focused on the eradication of poverty with Ms. Biljana Dukovska, president of the Macedonian Anti-Poverty Platform.
