Resilience in practice

RURITAGE invites communities to share their innovative actions aimed at increasing and strengthening resilience in rural communities in the midst of the global pandemic crisis.

Would you like to learn from other rural communities? To promote mutual support and boost resilience, RURITAGE has gathered rural experiences from within Europe and beyond. The project has co-built a collection of actions of knowledge, skills, ideas, and resources of social resilience.
