First CASTL Leadership Program Convening in Washington, November 08 2006

Three members of CEU team were present at the Convening in Washington on 8 November 2006.

We have begun collaboration with the idea of linking and exploring our approaches. We agreed to meet in Ireland (Cork) in 2007 and in US (Washington) in 2008.
