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.

The participants will have a base camp in roughly in the centre of the region which they are exploring. From there they 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.

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

The Training Course is recommended for Youth workers, Youth leaders, Project managers, Adults who work directly with young people and who represent rural areas or small scale towns/cities in their countries.
