About the project
BALENTES sets out the commitment of its partners in the fight against Depopulation. It proposes an interregional learning process based on the exchange of experiences between partners as a catalyst for the improvement of partners' local development policies. The learning process is based on the identification, analysis and exchange of knowledge and practices within the 'More social Europe' objective. The activities of the learning process include seminars, workshops, site visits, peer review meetings, the involvement of local young people and other activities to be defined with the partners. Balentes will actively contribute to EU horizontal principles: Sustainable development, Equal opportunities, Gender equality, Non-discrimination, and to the fulfilment of the enabling conditions laid down in the framework of ESI Funds 2021-2027.
Partners we are looking for
With the active involvement of universities, young talents and sources of local knowledge, Balentes privileges regions and smaller and isolated local authorities who face problems such as unemployment, depopulation, youth deviation, increase in social inequality, loss of local identity, reduction of the sovereignty and of the autonomy of local economies.
