You will often see on the European Youth Village social platforms and in articles the hashtag #înRITMRural. In English, it means „in rural rhythm”, but in Romanian it is more than that. #înRITMRural is a reference to the Rural Youth Informal Network, another component of the European Youth Village programme that aims to represent the needs of rural youth. We will soon open the call to registrations in the network, which will be followed by the selection of regional coordinators and members from rural youth, for each development region of the country.
Project implemented by the Active Development Association in partnership with Go Free – Association for Support of the Civil Society, with the financial contribution of Active Citizens Fund Romania, a program funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through EEA Grants 2014-2021. The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacity of the European Youth Village program to become a reference program for the development of the rural youth sector and to strategically contribute to systemic changes that support young people and the whole rural youth ecosystem in Romania by coalescing the sector, influencing and monitoring public policies and diversifying opportunities, resources and support tools for organizations and young people.
