Project —

We have initiated a project called Territory and Social Innovation (Terris) to work from the territory with the aim of understanding the demographic challenge and fight against. A challenge that we understand that we have to work in a holistic way as it addresses different challenges, such as the aging population, lack of work, lack of mobility, training, etc. And we want to work first strengthening the local leaderships that already exist in the territory.
