Youth Rural Entrepreneurship

Activating Rural Youth through Entrepreneurship is a project coordinated by the NGO La Sabina de El Bonillo from Spain, in partnership with NGOs coming from North Macedonia, Albania, Poland, Romania, Greece, Serbia and Lithuania. This Project was funded by the European Commission and the Erasmus+ Programme. The aim of the training course, developed in close cooperation with partners within the project, was to contribute to fighting youth unemployment and to foster the use of entrepreneurship as a tool for youth development in youth-work. Moreover, it is a tool for youth empowerment, activating inactive youth, and developing life learning competencies that young people, including young people with fewer opportunities, can actively use for their personal and professional development.

Highlights: Engaged as a co-trainer of the course was Vladimir Petkovski, ARNO representative, professor of Economics at the Economic Institute.
