Transnational cooperation between two rural regions in the frame of LEADER +

The Mediterranean Centre of Environment is coordinating a transnational cooperation between two rural regions in the framework of the LEADER + cooperation programme: the Leader Action Groups (LAG) Gevaudan in France (Lozere) and the LAG of Elassona/Kissavou in Greece.

Their common aims are:

  • the valorization of goat and sheep milk's products
  • the improvement of green tourism development

Through two visits the 2 LAGs met, excahnged experiences and had the opportunity to understand how many common aspects both regions have.

This first step is now followed by a cooperation project with several technical and professional study visits and participation to common international promotional events.

At the demand of the Greek professionals, some training sessions followed these visits, focused on green toursim development.
