The future of Canillas de Aceituno is the reason this website was created.
With a high young unemployment rate within the rural Axarquia region and an ageing population, the village of Canillas de Aceituno along with most rural villages is in need of an injection of employment opportunities, and a new impetus for the working environment.
After a meeting of local residents, and consultation with the town hall, it was decided to implement a series of work creating projects, funded by the European Union, the Junta de Andalucia, and various other sources.
One of the projects is the creation of a co-working hub for IT startups and with a facility for the development of small-medium enterprises, with accommodation, if required, both to be available at beneficial rates.
Help in the application for obtaining grants/loans will be available.
Further proposals are a community facility incorporating, a drama/exhibition area, a small local cinema/theatre, and an audiovisual studio.
With the aid of this website, and with the enthusiasm and support of the town council, new businesses will be able to prosper and grow within the wonderful environment of Canillas de Aceituno and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Tejeda National Park.
If you would like to be part of the new work experience and feel a change of work/lifestyle is for you, contact us with your details, and we will endeavour to help you relocate here.
