ENSURE Project: 5th International Partner Meeting

From 18th to 20th of March 2019, during a three-day program, the University of Thessaly will host the 5th International Partner Meeting, an event financed by the “Europe for Citizens” Programme of the European Union. 13 International participants from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Spain, will have time to discuss, to interact, to network among each other and share their experiences and opinions on rural development and on topics of EU policies at local level in rural communities.
Experts and academics will share their knowledge about the ways to impact young generation to contribute to the rural development. Topics such as innovative cultivation systems in Horticulture, the greenhouses as a tool for rural development, ongoing challenges for young Agronomists formulating competitive advantages in the labor market, and financial and development tools for young farmers, will feed the table discussion between the ENSURE partners and the students of the University of Thessaly, so as to share the impact of the project and to have the young generation’s feedback.
Part of the Event will take the form of a workshop to master the ENSURE final publication and to talk about planning future cooperation among partners.
Partners will also have a chance to visit the Brickworks museum (N. & S. Tsalapatas) in Volos and the village of Makrinitsa at Pelion Mountain, including a guided tour at the village and a visit at the facilities of the Environmental Education Center of Makrinitsa, after tasting local traditional dishes at a restaurant in Makrinitsa. The cultural program also includes a planned visit to the coastal side of Volos and the Archaeological Museum of Volos with a guided tour.
