EU-Rudisnet: A Collaborative Initiative for Rural Inclusion
EU-Rudisnet represents a collaborative endeavor spanning six European countries: Spain, Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Turkey, and Lithuania. This ambitious project aims to develop a strategic methodology focused on the social inclusion of people with disabilities residing in rural areas. The cornerstone of this endeavor is the creation and pilot implementation of an innovative training program, concentrating on mentoring techniques, leadership skills, and various soft skills.
The overarching objective of the EU-Rudisnet project is to empower individuals with disabilities in rural regions, enabling them to actively participate in local communities. Moreover, it seeks to facilitate the establishment and leadership of associations and organizations dedicated to championing the rights of disabled individuals in rural areas across the European Union.
