The Erasmus+ project “RuReality”, led by Associazione Joint, aimed at encouraging youngsters to repopulate rural areas creating sustainable business, cooperating with the territory and other enterprises, and participating actively in the social and political life.
RuReality | Social Entrepreneurship
The topics of “RuReality” project were sustainable entrepreneurship and rural development.
The main idea that we wanted to convey was encouraging youngsters to repopulate
rural areas creating sustainable business, cooperating with the territory and other enterprises, and participating actively in the social and political life.
We created ideas and considerations on it with the youngsters involved to see how
this could be achievable, therefore stimulating them to develop entrepreneurial ideas following this approach.
Youth Exchange in Ligonchio
The Youth Exchange took place in Ligonchio (Italy), a depopulated area in the Apennines, and involved 37 young people from Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
During the meeting we implemented workshops on social entrepreneurship, sustainability, visited local social enterprises and, finally, we guided the participants in developing 4 entrepreneurial ideas, to be implemented in the area of Ligonchio.
During the workshops we used several methodologies, mostly inspired to the “[email protected]” methodology, developed during the Capacity Building project “SEEDS.2” of Associazione Joint.
This short presentation of the activities aims at inspiring all the youth workers and organisations who want to develop projects on similar topics. For more information on the specific methodologies, do not hesitate to contact us.
