This SDD was implemented in the context of the MedBEESinessHubs project. The results presented here are from a virtual Structured Democratic Dialogues (SDDs) that was organized and managed from Cyprus between March and June 2022. The aim was to he participants from the five countries for a full-scale week-long training in SDD facilitation that took place in June 2022. The representatives from the participating countries were prepared on how to apply SDDs to address local challenges in their respective rural communities.
This first part of the SDD training took place between May and June 2022. It was organized as a sequence of 5 weekly Zoom meetings. The Triggering Question was: In the context of your work, what are obstacles that prevent efficient stakeholders’ dialogues?
The participants produced 35 ideas, which were clustered into 6 categories.
