Resilient communities – pillars of sustainable rural development

(02 May 2017) – The Euracademy Association and South and East Cork Area Development Partnership invite you to take part in the 16th Summer Academy on “Resilient communities – pillars of sustainable rural development” to be held in Cork, Ireland, from 3rd to 8th September 2017.

The 16th Summer Academy of the Euracademy Association aims to explore how resilience can be built and sustained within rural communities, and what are the options for these communities to plan their future in times of economic and environmental stress, mobilising their own resources and managing emerging crises in ways that assure the community’s sustainability.

The 16th Summer Academy welcomes participants from all over Europe who are working in the field of rural development. For this year’s summer academy, the organisers are targeting managers and staff of Local Development Agencies, and in particular LEADER LAGs, NGOs working in rural areas, other managers and animators of rural development; local and regional authorities or similar organisations; policy and decision makers; researchers, academics, training providers, students and experts in related fields.

The event is designed for around 40 participants, who will be invited to share their experiences, to acquire new knowledge and skills and to benefit from the wide networking opportunities offered by Euracademy and the co-organising partner. Participants should have a reasonable command of English.
