In November 2022, we had the pleasure of visiting Arenas De San Pedro for our ACORN Kick-off Meeting. We would like to extend a big thank you to our Spanish partner, ASOCIACION JOVENES SOLIDARIOS, for welcoming us and organizing a memorable and informative meeting.
The two-day meeting was filled with interactive sessions and informative field visits that helped us witness the positive impact of rural regeneration and the role of youth in driving this change. It was an eye-opening experience that allowed us to learn from the experts and see first-hand the difference they are making in their community.
The ASOCIACION JOVENES SOLIDARIOS team did a fantastic job of organizing the event and making sure that everyone felt welcome and engaged. They put together an exciting program that included presentations, discussions, and visits to local projects that are making a difference.
One of the highlights of the event was the field visits that allowed us to see how local projects are transforming the community. We were able to visit local municipalities, renewable projects, co-working organisations that are being developed to drive change. We were also able to meet with local youth group who are actively involved in community projects and learn about their experiences and challenges.
The ACORN Kick-off Meeting was an excellent opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and organizations and learn from their experiences. We are grateful to ASOCIACION JOVENES SOLIDARIOS for their warm hospitality and their dedication to the youth and the progression of rural regeneration. We look forward to continuing our partnership and working together to create a positive impact in rural communities.
