Many young people leave mountain regions because they see few opportunities on the labour market and have no prospects for the future. In four Polish mountainous regions, a campaign was conducted to inform young people about the opportunities offered by rural development funds for youth employment.
The tools and European funding deployed in rural and mountainous areas are often little known by local communities. More communication and information efforts are therefore needed in our territories to promote these opportunities. By promoting the multi-functionality of rural areas and explaining the available opportunities, the initiative reached out to a variety of young people who can benefit from rural development support and contribute to rural revitalisation through innovation and entrepreneurship. Such an initiative is easily transferable and should be encouraged under the 2021-2027 period.
