The Scotland-based Rural Youth Project is calling young people to join a focus group to help develop a pioneering “world-first” youth-centric Smart Village which will champion young people to collaboratively build vibrant, creative, and sustainable rural economies in the places they call home.
The Rural Youth Project Smart Village is a hyper-connected online platform that will include:
A space for young people to network and form mentoring relationships with their peers and, also older business and community leaders
Access to learning resources to support them in building a vibrant, creative and sustainable rural economy in Scotland
A marketplace where young people can sell products and services. As a buyer from Smart Village ‘shops’ you will know that for every pound you spend, that you will be supporting a Scottish young person and investing back into their local rural community.
A marquee where special events will be hosted where inspirational speakers and young people can come together.
A 'white pages' for young people to know who to contact for support.
