"The development of entrepreneurship in rural areas " - training

In the traditional annual seminar of the youth organization Rural Youth Europe, Finland, a young volunteer of the Serbian Center for Cooperation Milica Milosavljevic from Rekovac, participated from 12 – 19 October 2013 in the training "The development of entrepreneurship in rural areas " in Malvern, United Kingdom.


The training was organized with the support of Youth in Action program of the European Union. It aimed to create a network of interested young people from all parts of Europe with one thing in common - they all came from rural areas. The program focused on the development of entrepreneurial skills of the participants and encouraged an entrepreneurial spirit, with an ultimate aim to encourage participants and assure them that "everything can be done when the will is there".

Within several days of training, participants gained valuable knowledge about how to write a business plans and developed their own business ideas with recommendations from inspirational mentors and owners of successful businesses. Each year, Rural Youth Europe strives to present the most important problems of young Europeans and develop awareness of young people from rural areas providing features and tools to improve their living conditions. This helps young people to act independently, to have a say on their future and to strengthen their role in contemporary society.

For Milica Milosavljevic, who comes from one of the least developed municipalities in Serbia - Rekovac, this was an opportunity to present her municipality and country, and gain valuable experience that will help her improve the difficult situation in this municipality and hopefully initiate youth entrepreneurial activity.
