The LEADER Method - An Educational Film
Audiovisual and Media:
Capacity building, Leader, Promotion
The German LAGs often asked for a tool in which the LEADER approach was described in a way which could be easily understood by everybody. The film about the LEADER method was finalised on 19 December 2013.
It was a Christmas present for the LAGs and all stakeholders involved in the LEADER process. The film is available on the NRN website and can be downloaded and used by everybody who has some interest in the approach or would like to raise understanding of LEADER.

The short film sort to support people to understand what the LEADER approach is and to bring back the original meaning of the method - reminding everybody who is involved in the process. LEADER is very difficult to explain in a few minutes consequently the NRSU explored opportunities to overcome this challenge and decided that a short educational film would be the best solution. During the time between the funding periods the film is a very good
tool for the LAGs (or for those who would like to become a LAG) to convince stakeholders to join a LAG and to take part in the participatory consultation process. In addition, it is always good to refresh understanding of what LEADER is in principle amongst experienced stakeholders - without the bureaucratic burden.
