We’re glad that we can finally announce a practical guidebook with the necessary tools and resources to create a welcoming environment for digital nomads in the countryside, with a special focus on youth work!
Whether you are a local government official, an entrepreneur, a young person who is committed to changing the world, a community leader or a youth worker, this guidebook is for you. Together, we can create a world where rural areas flourish thanks to the presence of digital nomads, and not threatened by the outmigration. The guidebook is available in 5 languages (English, Spanish, Slovenian, German and Croatian)!
The digital nomad lifestyle is becoming increasingly popular as more and more people realise that they can travel the world while working online, from anywhere, with a well performing internet connection. Digital nomads are typically highly skilled and educated and have a disposable income that they are willing to spend in the communities they visit if their experience is meaningful. Rural areas have a lot to ffer digital nomads, including affordable housing, stunning scenery, and a slower pace of life.
Our guide, Beyond the Citylights, is organized into three chapters, making it easy to read and find the relevant information you need:
- CHAPTER 1: A GUIDE TO INDIVIDUAL AREAS will teach you how to establish a digital nomad retreat, covering important topics such as infrastructure, content creation, and storytelling. We have shared our insights on the value of youth work and advice to develop a sustainable retreat, its environmental footprint and social impact. Karin, your fictional guide, will walk you through the needs and wishes of digital nomads.
- CHAPTER 2: WHAT THE YOUTH SECTOR CAN DO focuses on the strategy that youth organisations and youth workers can take to support digital nomads. It adds value and complements the EU Youth Strategy for the validation and development of youth workers all across Europe.
- CHAPTER 3: WHERE TO GET FINANCING explores sustainable financial opportunities to establish a retreat or start a business venture in rural areas.
