Training: Vital Villages: planning and development for a sustainable and inclusive rural area

Posté par Eva ALOS MELCHOR Il y a 4 années 7 mois

Vendredi 30 Octobre 2015 - Jeudi 5 Novembre 2015

Since the 70 of the last century, the situation in many rural areas in Europe has dramatically changed. A process of accelerated decline took place: a severe decrease of inhabitants and facilities, weak infrastructure, less employment, unoccupied houses and buildings, increased poverty, groups suffering from social exclusion, etc. This was also the situation in Fryslân, the province where the training takes place. Inhabitants and provincial government, both wanting a liveable rural area, looked for ways to stop the above-mentioned process. Together with community development workers, they searched for suitable actions in this situation. This was the start of the Village Visions. First the plans were rather rudimental, but with the years we see a development towards almost professional Village Visions, made by the inhabitants themselves. Actual Village Visions cover a broad range of issues that are essential for the vitality of the village and suppose an active contribution of the inhabitants, including marginalised groups. Similar processes took place in other European countries, like UK and Denmark. As participation in village development requires a whole set of skills, education plays a key role in this process. This training will focus especially on Village Visions that promote a sustainable and inclusive rural area.
