This project provided programme, materials and lectures for the seminar ‘LAGs as engines of development in rural areas’ for the representatives of 30 LAGs. The seminar programme focussed on the role of LAGs in local development, why policy-makers focus on local development and how each LAG can become its own pole or hub of good practice.
The seminar programme included the following thematic fields:
Rationale for Rural Development
Communicating Rural Development
Facilitation – its key role
Cooperation projects – the benefits and pitfalls
The programme included presentations, case studies and group activities
A short Final Report was prepared by the Trainer after the seminar, to list perceived training needs and recommendations for further training/learning of the target group which participated at the seminar.
