Below you can read about the experience of a Greek participant who took part in this training course.
"Rural innovation was an amazing training course which took place in Greoux Le Bains in southern France. Greoux Le Bains is a small town but although its size full of history and stunning natural beauty.. A group of 25 people from all around Europe (Greece, France, Croatia, Slovakia, Germany, Romania) created an excellent company. I am so glad that I was able to participate in this project as it combined interesting workshops on social innovation, I had the chance to meet local actors and to discuss about possible collaborations. Moreover we visited various farms and we learned different practices. All this in combination with the various activities like swimming, canoe kayak made me very happy. This training course was an unforgettable memory for everyone and I strongly recommend to anyone to do something similar. "
