Organising bicycle rallies as a means of promoting social interaction and integration.
Projects & Practice
A cultural association in remote rural Latvia used LEADER support to foster co-creation in the local community, resulting in a museum exhibition that is unique in the Baltic States.
A Polish NGO used EAFRD funding to promote local traditional foods from the Mazovia region through a culinary trail, a food contest and a series of educational courses.
RDP support financed the design of circular cyclist trial of 146 km across the regional park Sierra Espuña. This kind of tourism promotes local development while ensuring minimum environmental impact.
The initiative reveals how various sources of funding can be used in a synergistic way to capitalise upon local resources and tackle unemployment sustainably.
