RuraLEARN warmly invites you to submit an entry into its international Competition seeking to spotlight "Brilliant Ideas for Better Village Life through Learning". We ask pioneers and actors of lifelong learning in rural communities to share with us what they consider as their best practices and achievements, and in particular those stories of success with a positive impact on the local community, and generally on "rural development". Beside those whose efforts have already borne fruit, we also encourage the participation of visionaries who are elaborating ideas and starting new initiatives.

Please read full details and instructions
