NAME OF THE PROJECT : „CREATOURS“

(Creative Agrotourism for Entrepreneurs)

PERIOD : 2021-2023

The situation generated by Covid-19 will mean the loss of millions of direct jobs in the tourism sector, which is why our project aims to be an alternative to this problem. Small tourism companies must be able to adapt to this new challenge, changing their model to the new needs of the market. The companies in the rural tourism sector are characterized by a lower level of occupation than the rest and on the other hand there is an atomization of this type of tourism, which is delocalized from the large urban centers.The main objective of our project is to provide an effective tool that enhances the creativity of the individual, making it capable of finding solutions to a situation as complex as the one that currently exists with the Covid-19 and tackle the main problems of tourism in rural areas:

– Abandonment of rural areas

– High rate of unemployment and subsidiarity associated with traditional activities

– Aging population of the rural world

“CREATOURS” will boost the entrepreneurial spirit, generating and creating creative synergies, which will make the agrotourism sector more competitive and encourage the development of high quality relevant skills and competences. The project focuses on the creating process of ideas, using analysis of trends and entrepreneurs experiences in tourism sector, adapting the methodology to agritourism for entrepreneurs.

NAME OF THE PROJECT : „ESCAPE 2“
PERIOD : 2020-2023

This project will be developed in the rural regions of several European countries as Spain, Italy, Ireland, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Portugal, Romania, Greece and Turkey.

🏘️ The project area entails regions with a lower level of productivity and employment. These territories have in common climate, the agro culture and traditions, productions and internal development linked to their rural culture.

🏞️ All the rural areas considered are territories rich in beautiful landscapes and view. Unfortunately, this potential is not very exploited, due to the economic situation of the rural and mountain areas of the European countries, which remain basically marginalized.

🎯 The objective of the project is to develop a common STRATEGY of participating countries to make effective the impact on local communities and the economy, and encourage the transnational cooperation and networking of all actors with local /regional and national authorities with competencies in tourism.
