FRIENDS OF RURAL YOUTH EUROPE – Spring has sprung, birds are singing, lambs are in the fields, the daffodils are starting to appear after the long winter and the days are getting brighter, all signs of one thing – HOPE. Hope that brighter days are indeed ahead, hope that COVID-19 will be brought under control in Europe and beyond, hope that the vaccinations will make their way to our communities and hope that we will be able to travel and see each other again soon.
For now, though we have created a private online space to bring together our wonderful RYEurope alumni so that stories can be shared, pictures resurrected and get ideas flowing for the months ahead. To join this group search for “Friends of Rural Youth Europe” on Facebook or reach out to your regional board member. If you haven’t been to one of our activities yet, fear not the group is open and welcoming to all our grass root members from all member organizations. We hope that the platform will allow you to engage with each other, share thoughts, local events and organize some club exchanges and much more !
We have many exciting plans in the pipeline including a series of informal zoom catchups with our RYEurope network, with the next one taking place on Wednesday 17th of February. Further information will be available on the Friends of Rural Youth Europe Facebook group so be sure to keep an eye out and join in.
