Rural areas and youth are a key to a more sustainable environment in Europe and beyond. Surveys on European youth expectations shows that they are eager to live and work in rural areas. With a bit more of information and support, trades in the environmental field are appealing to them. The VET system in rural areas plays an important role in the sustainable development by sharing locally what is at stake globally.

How rural communities and vocational training can be a safe bet to adress the green deal for a sustainable future ?

Based on experiences of VET organisations in rural areas, this lab could emphasize the leading role of rural areas in innovative ways of adressing the needs in Europe to contribute achieving the "green deal".
