Welcome, Rural Innovators!
The Women’s Academy for Rural Innovation will take place in Europe’s largest region – Spain’s Castilla y León – from the 23rd to the 28th of October 2022. Participants should prepare themselves for a week to remember!
Here, 15 ambitious women will embark on a journey of discovery. Mornings will be taken up with a combination of panels, workshops, roundtables and masterclasses, while the afternoons will include teamwork sessions. There is also a period of free time every day when participants can relax and reflect on the days’ learning. Every evening, participants will enjoy a traditional Spanish dinner prepared with local produce.
With a line-up of top-level experts and mentors, participants will learn new skills and approaches and have the chance to discuss how new tools could be implemented in their own rural environment. They will learn practical skills such as public speaking and setting up a business which will equip them to get out there and make a difference in their community. We hope that they will make lasting friendships with participants from similar walks of life in other countries.
