The MORE project ("Multifunctional role of women as a key driver for rural development") aims to improve the access to, and the quality of, training opportunities and qualifications of rural EU women. The realities of women's lives in rural areas have become more diverse in recent decades. In today's society, women assume a "multifunctional role" in the multi-faced context of their families (i.e. child and elderly care) and social and labour ties. This multiplicity of roles contributes significantly to improvement of their families' quality of life, as well as rural socio-economic development, civic engagement, and ways of rethinking the territorial contexts. MORE responds to the need for increasing rural women’s skills and capacities and making them direct actors of the social, policy and economic processes at local level.

The webinar is available to everyone who wishes to (re)watch it via MORE's YouTube channel. You can find it here!

Thank you all for your participation!
