Projects & Practice

In order to take advantage of the enormous potential of outdoor tourism, fostering cooperation and networking among the local actors is essential.
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.
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.
