in light of the Italian ALF Head of Network RIDE APS’ expertise in the field of
intercultural cooperation and dialogue, the project aims at the production of
knowledge at the Euro-Med level in an attempt to widely share its by-product,
building and promoting channels providing access to almost every social strata. Our
goal is to raise the level of awareness of the general public, fostering youth advocacy
on environmental protection. In concrete, our initiative is a research and innovation
oriented one, pointing at the detection of on-going best-practices (rooted in the
national traditions of the parties involved) in the agri-food sector, based on the
principles of circular economy, and their replication (on the other parties’ soil).
The project will be implemented in 5 steps. Each step represents a specific activity in which the project has been sub-divided. They are: first: project management, second: capitalization and visibility, third: creation of the working groups, fourth: replicability of best practices, and fifth: monitoring and evaluation of project results. The project approximate duration is 11 months. The main target groups are: formal and non- formal educators, youth organisations and cultural sector; civil society organisations within and outside the ALF national membership; and local stakeholders dealing with issues of water management and sustainable agriculture.
