EPISODE 1 - A Country Goes Nuts

July 28, 2018
Eco Village, Riscova, Moldova

What happens to a country when its young people leave to find jobs elsewhere? Jelena goes to Moldova and learns how a small community of newcomers is bringing renewed hope and new economic opportunities. 

We meet Evgenya, Julian and Liliana, three people working hard in different ways to build a brighter future for their families and community.  Evgenya returns home after years away, separated from her family while working in Russia to encounter two Robert Bosch alumni, Julian and Liliana and their plans for community-based rural development.

 

Bosch Alumni Network Event:
Practitioners Lab, Riscova: 25–29, April 2018
