Welcome to RuraLEARN

We proudly announce the organisation of a cluster of events on the island of Chios, Greece, on 24-27 June 2007, which aim to examine and make widely understood the crucial role that lifelong learning plays for development in rural Europe. The events include an international conference, seminar workshops, an open-access exhibition and fair, as well as a winners' final selection and presentation ceremony of a competition for students and teachers.
