Our vision

In the EU, youth from rural areas experience scarcity of formal and informal education and training, lack of employment prospects, climate-driven pressures on land and other resources, and geographical isolation.

Furthermore, rural areas are affected by a higher share of NEETs, and a higher proportion of the population faces the risk of social exclusion compared to the cities.

The project aims to address such problems, having as a main objective the strengthening of young people’s key competences and sense of initiative.

Towards youth empowerement

We are working to facilitate young people’s entry in the labour market and the creation of new figures supporting the promotion and development of rural areas; to do so, the project foresees to provide them with social media marketing skills making them become the protagonists of the promotion and enhancement of local heritage, such as culture, food, artefacts, built and natural environment.
