Resilience is a multi-dimensional concept; it relates to economic, environmental and socio-cultural factors. This project seeks to respond to macro- and micro-level imperatives and impetuses towards the promotion of resilience. Specifically, the project propose to identify and capture innovative practices in respect of resilience and to disseminate and promote conducive knowledge capital. By working collaboratively with stakeholders (including VET institutions and rural development organisations), the project envisage promoting consensus in deriving a shared understanding of, and commitment to, resilience.

The project’s primary objective is: to devise a practitioner-oriented, workable, robust, reliable and solution-focused capacity building training program that captures the merits of resilient communities and enables stakeholders, in a vocational learning environment, to assess, promote, review, tweak and evaluate approaches to resilience promotion across a range of rural area types in Europe.
