Focussed on empowering and protecting the future of rural youth, the Rural Youth Network is an initiative focused on understanding and supporting the rural youth.
What started as a large scale survey has evolved to include a three-day festival – the Rural Youth Ideas Festival – which in 2018 brought together 80+ young people to share their experience of living in rural areas in Scotland.
Featuring a line-up of inspiring speakers and leadership, business and communication skills workshops, against a backdrop of glamping, live music and local food, the festival aligns with the network’s core aims of empowering young people to share their story, making them feel heard and giving them the resources to thrive.
What we love about it: A platform that empowers young people to speak for themselves.
