On 14-15 October 2021, the team from the European Center for Social Finance traveled to Patras, Greece, to participate in the “Stay–on” project kick-off meeting organized on the Lead Partner Rezos Brands’ premises.

The project partners discussed matters of action, the work plan, and project schedule and budget issues. “Stay – on,” fully entitled “A community–based and driven project,” benefits from a €1.299.741 grant from Iceland Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Youth Employment. 

The project’s ultimate objective is to create conditions that enable young people to “stay on” rural land by ensuring their access to opportunities, benefits, services and jobs.
