The Ministry of Agriculture of Udmurtia together with the Community Initiatives Support Fund launched the accelerator of social initiatives in rural areas “Village of the future” in the year of the village. There is the first stream of students – it’s 40 villages and villages. Also, the program involves six teams which are included in the reserve squad. The press office of the Ministry of Agriculture of the region informed about it.
Accelerator participants have been studying online since April. The training consists of four blocks: tourism development, beautification, improving the quality of education and social entrepreneurship.
Students already know what project management is. In the future, the teams will study the branding of rural settlements, event marketing, the economy of the territories, the formation of communities, and public speaking.
The first face-to-face meeting of the accelerator stream will take place at the House of Peoples' Friendship in Izhevsk on May 29.
There are the significant problems in the villages: a shortage of doctors and teachers, a lack of pharmacies and sports facilities, emergency houses of culture in villages with a population of less than 500 people, a lack of gas pipelines, roads, Internet, infrastructure and communications on sites for individual housing construction.
