Italian Network of Pro Loco Associations: call for partners

The Italian Network of Pro Loco Associations (UNPLI) announce a “call for partners” for a project within the H2020 Rural Renaissance program.

The title of the project is “FOOD CULTURE AND RESILIENCE IN MOUNTAIN AREAS”.

It aims to design and test, within the European mountain rural areas, a development and resilience model based on food culture, meant as both agri-food industry value chain and intangible cultural heritage.

The project will also deliver a set of tools for policy makers, local communities, farmers, entrepreneurs, institutions and citizens.

Such objective will be achieved leveraging the knowledge and best practices on intangible cultural heritage and putting it in connection with economic operators, local communities, institutions and policy makers, in order to design and develop a sustainable growth model for mountain areas, which are tackling big challenges as, for instance, climate change, depopulation, and ageing.

All interested NGOs of ICHNGO Forum dealing with food culture in European mountain areas are welcome to contribute to this project, strengthening the internationalization and the intangible cultural heritage leg of the promoting consortium.

Please express your interest in joining the project and the international consortium by 11 January 2019 by writing to partnership@unpli.info.
