European Union, 2019
European Union, 2019

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. The countryside can be international!

Do you want to meet other youth workers from countryside, villages, rural centres and small towns, where distances, human resources and size of the organisation can cause challenges for international youth projects?

You will look at the cooperation of actors in a Finnish region South Carelia. During the study visit you will see how international activities were initiated in the region with the help of the largest town and how the small villages learned to adopt international activities as a permanent part of their work.

You will meet young people who have been part of international projects, see how projects have been carried out in small places and explore what kind of benefits of regional cooperation gives.
