\"\"This Handbook of Tools and Techniques is one of the main outputs from the Erasmus+
Knowledge Sharing project entitled: Opposing Force – How to Combat the On-going Drain of Young Adults from Rural Areas. The need for such a project was clearly identified in previous research, and by policymakers, youth workers and civic society organisations in the partner countries because there is a growing awareness of the decline in numbers of young adults who were staying on to work and to live in rural areas and small towns after school age. It was apparent that young adults who chose to stay in their rural community faced particular challenges related to employment, housing, further and higher education and training opportunities, and inclusion in civic society and in local decision-making.
