WHAT IS A LEARNING VILLAGE?
Heritage & Traditions
A learning village is a community which knows how to band itself and define why its own heritage is unique. We want to make heritage accessibility our priority.
Environment & Agriculture
Protecting wild species, managing shared green areas, agriculture as a landscape service.
The future is in eco-tourism.
Participation & Democracy
Education, mediation and community participation are the heart of a living community. Transparency and innovative low-cost technologies are at the core of our actions.
Innovation & Creativity
Living in rural areas means to put environment and traditions at the centre of the future. In this way, Internet, strategic thinking & new job skills can make remote areas flourish in a sustainable way.
