The Calypsos meeting took place between February 8th and 9th, 2018. As for the first day, at around 9.15 a.m. the attendees were picked up at the Hotel Torre Luz in Almería, to continue with the visit to the Juvenile Justice Centre "El Molino", where they showed us the facilities of the centre as well as the work done by those responsible for it with minors and youth. This centre belongs to the Junta de Andalucía network and is managed by the NGO Meridianos Association.
Once finished the visit we went to the University of Almería for the official opening of the meeting of the Calypsos Project, that took place in the Aula Magna of Building C with the presence of the Rector Magnifco of the University of Almeria, D. Carmelo Rodriguez, D. Miguel Ángel de la Cruz, Director of the Provincial Penitentiary Centre of Almería, Francisca L. Fernández, Territorial Delegate of Education in Almería, Encarnación Carmona, Dean of the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Almería and Alfonso Ballesteros, Director of the CEPA of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
Around 12.15 a round table was held in which the European and Erasmus+ projects were presented, the participants being the coordinators D. Pablo Pumares, of the ReCULM Project, D. Juan Carlos Martínez, of the KA2 CITI-VAL Project and KA3 SERA and director of the Educational Centre of the Almería prison, Don Francisco Javier Borque, of the Exyonet Project of Meridianos and D. Juan García of the Calypsos Project.
Mrs María Dolores Roldán from the Calypsos Project was the moderator of the meeting. It should be noted that in addition to the interrelation aspects of these projects since they deal with issues related to immigration, inmates and young inmates or ex-inmates out of these centres, it was used to present the results of what was originally the intellectual product 1, as an introductory element and summary of the objectives of the Calypsos project.
Once the corresponding lunch was finished, a visit was made to the Penitentiary Centre of Almeria "El Acebuche". There we toured the facilities of the centre and visited some modules in which the activities that are carried out were explained. We also visited the facilities of the Adult Centre integrated into the penitentiary centre, and we were exposed, by its director, the educational programme that is being carried out, as well as the activities and innovation projects that are being developed.
After the visit to the penitentiary centre, around 18:00, we proceeded to a visit of the natural park of Cabo de Gata-Nijár, specifically to a panoramic view from the Mirador de las Sirenas and Faro.
The following day, at 9.30 a.m., the restricted meeting began in a building of the University of Almeria in the centre of the city, in order to facilitate the access of the participants. Firstly, the Intellectual Output 2 to 3 were presented and discussed, and the University of Almería presented the preliminary results of the data collected in the Almeria sample.
Hereinafter, the integration of the rest of the IOs and their integration in the final report as by-products were dealt with. Finally, the issues related to the management of the project were reviewed and preparations were started for the following meetings, especially those related to the Brussels meeting in October 2018.
The formal meeting was concluded at 4 p.m.
Afterwards, people who did not travel that afternoon had a guided visit to the Alcazaba of Almería and other emblematic places of the City.
