Just about 6 months after a first TtF was conducted there in December 2008, BRIDGE in Colombia has taken new momentum with the holding of the first Module workshop on "Polling, Counting & Results", in Bogota, from 3 - 6 August. This workshop was held with the technical support of International IDEA and funding from the Registraduria Nacional de Estado Civil (Colombian EMB) and the AECID (Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development).
The first BRIDGE TtF ever conducted in Colombia, and only the 3rd to take place in Latin America, took place in Bogota on 1-6 December with the support of International IDEA. The workshop was co-funded by the Registraduria and IDEA (through a regional BRIDGE project supported by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation in Development, AECID).
Professional training usually does not involve impromptu soccer matches. But there they were: adult men and women engaging in an unexpectedly brutal game in a hotel conference room in Washington, D.C. Unbeknownst to most of the players, this was no ordinary game.
The Implementation workshop was held in Scandinavian House (New York) on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th March 2007, with 22 participants and 2 facilitators. The workshop was facilitated by Yvonne Goudie (BRIDGE Project Office) and Deryck Fritz (UNEAD).
