Youth unemployment is generally tied with countries' economic state, however creativity and finding ways to bypass the big problems, may help young people in improving their economic well-being. The Youth Exchange “RE-CRAFT: Rural Entrepreneurship, Craft your future!” will be dedicated to the unemployment problems and entrepreneurship opportunities of young people living in rural areas.7 days youth exchange “RE-CRAFT: Rural Entrepreneurship, Craft your future!” is planning to gather 33 rural young people from rural communities of Italy, Czech Republic, Poland, Ukraine Georgia and Armenia to provide workshops and skills on handicrafts and employability tips. The participants are going to be youngsters from small towns, rural areas, who have never attended any "Erasmus Plus" activities before and constantly confronted with the problem of unemployment.The project aims to encourage Young People in revitalizing the cultural heritage and using them as a tool for putting their skills into business, thus reducing the level of unemployment and sense of despair. This will help not only the participants from rural areas to find comprehensive ways of entrepreneurship, but will also help in rehabilitation and preservation of cultural heritage of participating countries.For 7 days young people will bring together various craft techniques, learn from each other and invited masters, discover business examples through site visits, get acquainted with the foundations of entrepreneurship, develop new ideas in crafts and tourism business, personally test what means to be an entrepreneur!
