To identify the competence gaps
and training needs of fragile community members and local authorities in areas, related to the creation of sustainable new jobs and services for the betterment of these communities.
To provide training to community coaches
and delivering pilot community workshops which will help fragile communities’ members acquiring competences they can use for solving their practical community problems and thus empowering communities
To transfer the project effects to other regions
and countries in order to maximise the efforts of the partnership to support the revival of fragile communities across Europe.

Fragile communities are urban and rural communities (city quarters, towns and villages) that have been experiencing a persistent demographic, economic and social decline – an issue which has become a policy concern in all European countries.
