Project Craft – Coworking in Rural Areas to Prepare Young People for Future Trends -in where CTI was partner -has officially been completed. Some of the key findings form the projects are quite relevant with the topics implemented in CO-MAP project. In particular:
- Climate changes and social challenges (Covid, War, Recession, Technology) forced the development of the circular economy, in which more and more young people will open opportunities for realization.
- Mobility, cooperation, and exchange of ideas in an intercultural team are invaluable experiences for young people. They need to be encouraged to develop these skills in order to cope with restrictions.
