An ecovillage was developed on Sweden’s Gotland island using EAFRD funding, providing a model for environmentally-friendly accommodation, waste water treatment, food and energy production. The site is also a template for non-consumerist approaches.
A very small island in Sweden used EAFRD support to broaden the range of services offered by a village shop by building a café area and a kitchen.
A feasibility study was launched in order to set the foundations for turning an ancient crater lake into a driver for local development.
