The Warsaw meeting took place between 25-26 January 2011. It was a further step forward towards fuller co-operation, following a recent seminar in Warsaw held on the 26-27 October 2010 and a workshop held during a meeting of Priority 9 of EUSBSR in Helsinki on the 18 November 2010.

Before meeting each country was asked to select two projects targeting rural youth and a good innovative climate in rural areas which could serve as good examples. Taking into account the vision of this flagship,  projects of the following categories were especially invited to be presented:

  • Supporting young people in creating a vision for a rural future;
  • Gathering young people together to describe their future dream village;
  • Connecting young people, researchers and practitioners;
  • Training young people to be innovative;
  • Creating a support network for young people (and others) to continue to be innovators.

The objective of the meeting was to present each of the two projects selected by each country and to discuss a common agenda on, how the different projects can interact and possible future activities within the flagship project.

Participating in the meeting were representatives from Estonia, Finland; Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Poland including key people responsible for projects and representatives of National Rural Network or Ministry of Agriculture.

The content of the meeting was as follows:
