The Rural Youth Project is seeking vloggers

June 27, 2018  | 

This research-based project aims to develop feasible strategies to facilitate the involvement of young people in agricultural and rural activity by better understanding their current situation, aspirations, opportunities and challenges. It will engage with 18 to 28 year olds in, or brought up in rural places throughout Scotland. It will also invite English and Welsh young people to participate to provide further data to compare and contrast the results in Scotland. 

Furthermore, it will draw comparisons with three international countries - Austria, Australia, Canada and USA by inviting native rural youth to take part in the project. 

The outcomes will be shared with the research partners, and wider industry to help ensure that, collectively, we are informed and equipped to better support and inspire the future generations of Scotland. The research will be followed up, including additional countries, from 2019-22 to develop the unfolding picture over time. 

The Rural Youth Project is seeking to expand its base of vloggers in advance of the Rural Youth Ideas Festival, Aug. 1-3 in Scotland. If you meet the age criteria and have an established online presence through your vlog, please contact Becca Rainnie at Jane Craigie Marketing. The project continues through to 2022, so if your online presence still needs to be established, there may be opportunities to participate in the upcoming years.

See The Rural Youth Project website for current vloggers and details about the program.
