Let’s green, digital and animate rural inclusive territories!


This project has been funded by the European Union.

GEInnova, recently hosted the LTTA, Become Digital Trainers in Zaragoza, Spain and were joined by representatives from Ballyhoura Development CLG (Ireland), project leader Asociația GAL Napoca Porolissum (Romania), Edufor (Romania), Synthesis (Cyprus), GEInnova (Spain) and Innovation Hive (Greece).

Training provided participants with the skills to design and deliver real-world simulation of learning outcomes utilising innovative and interactive educational tools.

Rural areas across Europe face similar challenges, demographic change, connectivity, low income and limited access to services, while at the same time, there are a number of opportunities in relation to the environment, food production and unique cultures.

This is a research and training project that aims to increase the number of trained Community Development personnel in rural areas throughout Europe. Training will focus on supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable groups across the partners' territories.

This project aims to create a lasting impact in local communities by raising awareness of the environment, just transition and the transition to a green, digitalised and sustainable Europe.

In 2023, the project team will be seeking participants from rural communities to take part in an online, digital training programme for Community Development officers.

Successful participants will have the opportunity to engage in a transnational work placed learning programme in Romania.
