The Rural Civic Service to involve youth in local development

The Rural Erasmus created by InSite aims to support project leaders in villages, to promote the vitality and creativity of rural areas and to enable young people aged 16 to 26 to get involved in the development of projects of general interest that strengthen social cohesion, promote heritage and improve the quality of life in the municipalities of regions Occitania, Corsica and Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur.

In 2020, a total of 41 missions were carried out in 38 municipalities with 22 young people, for example to support the development of an eco-village in Corsica, to meet with older adults to discuss their needs and promote home-stay accommodation, to run a co-working area or to support local initiatives launched after the first lockdown.

Rural Erasmus programmes are multiplying in Europe, the originality of the missions proposed by InSite lies in the smart use of the Civic Service scheme for the profit not only of municipalities with few resources but also of all young people, not only students, who want to get involved in these territories. The initiative can be transferred to any type of specific contract for youth existing in other countries.

Find out in detail how the scheme works in our good practice.
