To support youth associations or municipalities that want to implement the ruraLAB 3.0 methodology or create rural hubs

Why is social entrepreneurship in rural areas important?

Social entrepreneurship is a specific type of entrepreneurship in which the new business ideas developed will have a positive social, economic and/or environmental impact on the area where they are implemented.

Given that in Europe we are facing a problem regarding the depopulation and emptying of rural areas, it is essential to create opportunities for young people in these areas, and that these opportunities are environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.

Social entrepreneurship may be the opportunity that rural areas have been waiting for.
