This month, our YouWeen participants travelled together to Kaunas (Lithuania) to take part in the training programme ‘Entrepreneurial Sustainable Actions and Ideas in Local communities’. It was an amazing opportunity to meet other like-minded young people, learn from the local entrepreneurs and build new skills. Find out what young participants thought about the trip:

‘Myself and 3 other girls from UK travelled to Lithuania with Sculpt for the YOUWEEN green entrepreneurship training programme. When we arrived, we met the most amazing group of young women from across Europe and made some fantastic new friends. Out of all the activities the week had to offer our favourite was Wednesday’s trip to rural Lithuania. We met local business woman, Lina, who welcomed us into her thriving Airbnb business which she called her ‘homestead’. We tried fresh produce she made from ingredients growing on her farm and were introduced to the world of sustainable working and living. Overall, it was a fantastic trip; the training paired with our free time spent exploring the city of Kaunas was an opportunity none of us will forget!’
