SITES WORKSHOP IN RÖBÄCKSDALEN

Röbäcksdalen had a workshop in January for all staff active within SITES at the station. The day was divided in two parts; one where all SITES activities and the budget were presented and one where our activities were evaluated by discussing how we can become better, what new things we should do and what goals we should have for our SITES activities during 2020.
