Community Enterprises & Responsible Citizenship for Youth and Women
Unlike densely populated areas, rural areas are gradually depopulating. As entrepreneurial competence declines in those areas, many young adults and women can’t access entrepreneurial opportunities. In these zones, it is also difficult for youth and women to participate in the community, leading to a reduction in participatory skills.
Community Enterprises (CEs) are socioeconomic entities that benefit their communities by involving citizens in the planning, production, financing and exploitation activities.
The project will target young adults and women living in rural areas who want to access better social and work opportunities with the goal of starting their own businesses.
By implementing this project we aim to increase the participatory skills and entrepreneurial skills of the target groups in the CEs sector. In the long term and through the growth of CEs and the implementation of official oversite and regulation in the sector, the project will help strengthen sustainable growth in EU rural areas.
