Rural Study Visit in South-West Finland

Rural Study Visit in South-West Finland

Study Visit | 19. – 24. September 2017 | Finland

Small organisations in rural areas can find human resources as a challenge in organising international youth projects. This study visit shows good practices in one region in Finland. Rural areas can be international too!

The study visit will gather together youth workers from small scale towns, rural areas and little villages to have a look at Finnish good practices that help the countryside to be more international.

We will have a base camp in roughly in the centre of the region which we are exploring. From there we will make visits to villages and other small places and see what kind of practices youth workers have to give their young people an opportunity to meet diversity and Europe in projects.

We will also get to know the participating organisations and create contacts between participants. We can start forming project ideas and see how to get forward with the ideas later.

Our focus will be on youth projects like youth exchanges and the European Voluntary Service (EVS).
