PR1 Inspirational package

The Inspirational package aims to provide an overview of rural women’s green social entrepreneurship at the level of four European countries involved in the implementation of the project (Cyprus, Romania, Slovenia and Serbia) and at the EU level. The Inspirational package includes five reports on the analysis of the national context of each country and the European context and a repository of 20 good practices in Europe.

Download the national and Eu level reports and repository of good practices.

PR2 WE GREEN Capacity Building program

 This program is carefully crafted based on a thorough needs analysis and the findings from PR1. PR2 not only involves creating a comprehensive capacity-building curriculum for educators but also emphasises the creation of an online platform. This platform serves a dual purpose—it facilitates the delivery of the capacity-building program and provides a centralised hub for valuable information related to the initiative.  The overarching goal remains to empower women in rural communities by cultivating green social entrepreneurship.

You can access the training and resources through the WE GREEN e-learning platform link.  

 

PR3 Implementation of Capacity Building Programme

PR3 empowers educators supporting rural women with green social entrepreneurship skills through a capacity-building program. Trainers from implementing countries will support local implementation using a cascading methodology. The program targets participants through an open call facilitated by an online capacity-building tool. The pilot course/curriculum aims for a broad impact in adult education.

Please download the guidelines for trainers, handouts and eight English infographics covering green, digital, entrepreneurial, social, and rural women’s skills. All training materials and infographics are downloadable. Translations in other languages are coming soon.
