PlaceOut! launches transformative training series

PlaceOut! is an initiative designed to cultivate leadership and active engagement among the youth in non-urban regions across four European countries. 

This month, we are excited to kick off a comprehensive series of local trainings and online webinars to nurture an ongoing dialogue on the regeneration of rural territories. These sessions are strategically designed to empower young individuals, encourage community participation, and foster collaboration between Youth Grassroots Organisations (YGOs) and Local Initiatives (LIs) with a specific focus on space regeneration and active involvement.

Let’s take a closer look at the lineup of trainings that will surely inspire the participants.
