Kick off event of the Action on 14th October 2019 in Brussels

Rural NEETs’ Youth Network (RNYN) is a running four-year COST Action that kicked-off on the 14th of October of 2019. The network aims at developing a model of comprehension for rural youths not in education, nor in employment or training (NEET). This model is supposed to unfold social exclusion risk and protective factors associated to this group. According to the EUROSTAT, NEETs are more prevalent in rural regions, compared urban and suburban areas, especially in Southern and Eastern European countries. Thus, this situation represents a threat, but also an opportunity for rural development.
