How social innovation can deliver rural services: a new brochure of examples now available

SIMRA has just released its second brochure collecting examples of social innovation in marginalised rural areas in Europe and the Mediterranean regions.

This brochure focuses on rural services, more precisely on how social innovation can help rural services such as health, education, energy, mobility and other social services of key importance in marginalised rural areas where these services are often in decline. A sneak peek of what you will find in this brochure includes mountain therapy for people with disabilities in Italy, a residence with grandmothers to attract young people in Bulgarian depopulated villages, an eco-social farm in Slovenia and an initiative to integrate unemployed women in Spain.

This collection of examples is in phase with the new concept of “Smart Villages”, promoted by the European Commission, that aims at revitalising rural services through both digital and social innovation.

You can also  access the first SIMRA brochure by clicking here and get inspiration for your own territory.

The examples presented in these brochures are extracted from the SIMRA database, available on our project’s website. If you have an example of social innovation in marginalised rural areas to share, don’t hesitate to click here to submit it.

SIMRA – Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas, a four-year EU Horizon 2020 project in which Euromontana is a partner.
