Community-led local development as a European movement
Workshop date / time / venue:
Tuesday 09 October 2012
11:15 – 13:00
CoR, Van Maerlant, VMA3
This workshop aims to demonstrate the deep foundations on which CLLD can build in both urban and rural areas. It will show how different local approaches and strategies were conceived and sustained over many years under various EU and national policies and programmes, progressively coming to represent a European movement.
Case studies presented by LDnet members, who combine on-the-ground experience with extensive research on local development, will provide the perfect springboard for a critical debate on the challenges facing CLLD in the 2014-2020 period.
A networking event afterwards will also allow participants to discuss the LDnet Ebook and CLLD declaration.
