Creativity and innovation in the countryside: preparing a transnational rural project
Start date: Dec 1, 2009,
With this feasibility visit we bring young people from rural youth organisations in Estonia, Finland, Denmark, UK, Sweden and Austria together to share their ideas, best practices and knowledge of rural youth activities with the aim of organising a multilateral youth exchange in Sweden in summer 2010. The multilateral youth exchange will be the central activity of a transnational project on innovative and creative rural development. At this feasibility visit we will plan the transnational project and explore together how we can combat the social exclusion and increasing marginlisation of young people in the countryside. Topics such as youth entrepreneurship, employment issues, and finding new ways for young people to develop rural areas and participate in their local communities will be discussed in detail.The working methods of this feasibility visit are based on non-formal learning and will have a participatory approach. We will discuss the planned theme and the participants' experience in this subject. As the activities planned for the project will be designed to bond the group so that they will develop a good working ethos, the programme will also encourage the group to think and discuss how the issues are relevant to them and how they can act on them on a European level.The feasibility visit will be held in Sweden over 3 days in January 2010 with 9 participants
