The Rural School of Economics is a travelling classroom to connect and share local knowledge made in rural communities across Europe for now. The classes happen in the same places that rural culture and economies are made: in small workshops, in kitchens, in fields, in streets and in village halls.
The Rural School of Economics is multilingual, intergeneration and trans-local. It connects communities who might be far apart, but who are working on similar issues. Everyone involved is both a learner and a teacher. It’s powered by mutual knowledge exchange, cultural co-production and everyday economies.
The Rural School of Economics was set up by Kathrin Böhm and Wapke Feenstra from Myvillages.
As part of BE PART the school opened a Community Making Space and introduced Lumbungsden at Scottish Sculpture Workshop. More information about the Rural School of Economics in Lumsden can be found here.
