Rural Development Programme (RDP) support contributed to the revitalisation of an almost abandoned village in the small Aegean island of Nisyros.
Projects & Practice
Tularù is an organic and multi-functional closed-cycle farm born that began life as a centre for sustainable production. It offers an alternative approach to solving current environmental, social and economic issues for farms.
Supporting vulnerable people and facilitating their re-integration into society through small volunteer jobs on local farms.
Restoring a wetland ecosystem and creating an observation area, for ecological, hydrological, educational and touristic purposes.
An ambitious young farmer used RDP support to create a new niche product and a touristic attraction out of his produce of mushrooms that were not suitable for the market.
In a rural area that is rather disadvantaged and in risk of abandonment, EAFRD and ESF support were combined in a project for the integration of migrants through work training.
EAFRD funding enabled the creation of an integrated sports and adventure centre where visitors can enjoy nature and benefit from its environmental education services.
