Activating Women’s Entrepreneurial Mindsets and Social Change Through Creativity and Culture in the Covid-19 Era

Short Description

The ACT4WOMEN project focuses on women living in rural, remote, isolated or marginalised areas who have restricted access to work and who engage in the production of handicrafts or other forms of home-based productions or services related to culture, community or environment they live in.

Rural women are the driving force for the maintenance and development of these areas, both in cultural and financial terms, as they contribute to the preservation of traditions and culture and the development of the countryside which faces a constant process of depopulation.

The ACT4WOMEN project aims to help women acquire entrepreneurial, digital, communication and leadership skills in order for them to learn how to promote, distribute, and sell the products through upgrading the home-based business model into start-ups or social enterprises.
