Our GRANULAR Living Lab in Ourense, Spain, has succeeded in bringing young students from Galicia together for a day focused on Europeanism and rural development.
On 13 September, the municipalities of San Xoán de Río and Trives de Galicia (Spain) in Ourense hosted an event at the Institute IES Xermán Ancochea Quevedo.
The main objective of this event was to showcase the opportunities available to young people living in rural areas of Galicia. In addition, the event served to illustrate existing opportunities for volunteering, doing an internship, studying, or even working in the European Union or even outside it.
In this framework, the GRANULAR project was presented during this event to provide local school pupils with an example of how the European Union seeks to involve rural society.
María Isabel Doval, Vice-Chancellor of Welfare, Equity and Diversity of the University of Vigo, local partner of the GRANULAR project, highlighted the potential of GRANULAR’s work to connect rural areas across Europe. Moreover, Breixo Martins, Researcher of University of Vigo in Geopolitics, emphasised the project’s importance in achieving a sustainable rural world that involves key social actors in every rural corner of the European Union.
