In all partner countries, there is a significant amount of NEETs and high youth unemployment, with increased rates of both in rural areas. In the current pandemic and climate situation, promoting green self-employment collective strategies which articulate urban-rural collaboration among young people can serve a dual purpose: promoting innovative forms of social and collective entrepreneurship among young people, particularly those who are facing difficulties and/or fewer opportunities, and actively involving young people in the fight against climate change from an intercultural, systemic, and skill-building perspective. However, lack of policy support, ways of life, and insufficient skills hinder the possibility of young people engaging in professionally promising and socially much-needed practices, both in rural and urban areas.


YURI aims is to promote social, green, and collective entrepreneurship among young people, particularly those who are facing difficulties and/or fewer opportunities, from an intercultural, systemic, and skills-building perspective.


YURI handbook is to promote inclusion and diversity, a sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, and climate action, by providing young people and youth workers with the resources and inspiration to:

  • Critically address belief systems, prejudices, and stereotypes regarding identity and rural and urban settings
  • Promote the development of the necessary competencies and social-emotional skills to successfully engage in collective green social entrepreneurship
  • Foster advocacy to share and debate common alternatives to the current climate crisis from a perspective of rural-urban collaboration and youth collective entrepreneurship
