The main goal of this project is to train future rural entrepeneurs. There exists the need to go back to the countryside, to the popular and traditional wisdom and healthier ways of life. Everyday more and more youg people try to make a living going back to the countryside. This project aims to bring tools, training, encouragement and examples to the participants in order to learn to be able to have business iniciatives in rural areas. In order to do so, activities will be organised during 3 weeks, centered in 4 scopes: Scope 1: "ENCOURAGEMENT" Training and learning workshops on traditional trade activities in areas where are opportunities of employment and work. Scope 2: “TOOLS” Specialised classes for developing the skills of the entrepeneur. Scope 3: “EXAMPLES” Visist sucessful local examples on rural entrepreneurship. Scope 4: “ACTION” Each participant will have to present his or her own project at the end of the training. The methodology will be non-fomal education, with a detailed and varied programme of activities in order to obtain a complete view from different perspectives so as to promote the entrepreneurial spirit. During workshops, classes, debates, etc… the young people will have an active and dynamic role. The aim of this Project is to promote a higher social participation by young people; the self-employment and the coming back to the countryside in a logic, viable and committed way. This activity will take place from the 1st to the 21st of julyin the ecological farm "Garma" in Llanos, Cantabria, Spain. This place was chosen because it is a good example of how a group of young people can undertake rural projects. The creation of this kind of programmes promotes a long-term view and offers the necessary tools in order for young people to become the change and the social movement we need in our societies.
