REC–THINK aimed to develop a program to involve rural young people in the process of rethinking themselves and their role in the future of their localities.
To achieve this goal it was used the participatory video as a tool for expression and generation of ideas, in such a way “press REC” was the first step to build sustainable alternatives for young people in their home regions.
Therefore this project aimed for young people to give voice to their region, breaking the geographical isolation and building a collaborative network to strengthen social relationship.
The project aimed to train young people to be active agents in political and economic transformation processes, through the development of digital and communicative skills and support the building of participatory and collaborative citizenship. Particulary emphasis was placed on re-thinking sustainable alternatives for the future of their locality.
Therefore, this project pursued the following specific objectives:
-Develop methodologies and training to promote the empowerment, participation and full development of young people in rural areas in Europe through the participatory video.
-Create a virtual community with tools for exchange of experience, strategies and the creation of a sustainable alternative for rural areas in Europe, with young people and members of organizations active in these areas.
-Preparing young people aware of being active agents in local political processes and economic transformation through the development of digital and communication skills
-Train stakeholders of the participating organizations in the tools and methodologies developed during the project.
