This case study illustrates how LEADER can respond to local development needs.
Projects & Practice
The ‘Terroir Moselle wine and architecture route’ is a ‘preparatory’ cooperation project gathering six LEADER areas, five wine growing areas from four regions and three countries.
Promoting the sustainable management of small, privately owned forests. This is the winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'LEADER' category.
The project considered built heritage as a development lever for a rural area and relied upon the younger generation to raise awareness about it and to take care of it in the longer term.
As part of the greater LEADER project ‘Moselle Diversity’ the sub-project ‘World City’ supported the organisation of summer activities for children aged between 7 and 12, including children of refugees, and fostered cultural diversity and the values of ‘living together’.
An all-day bus tour to another country with 24 agri-food entrepreneurs and about ten experts and advisors has proved an innovative way of developing business ideas and the skills and confidence to implement them.
