LeaderFEST 2013 traditional meeting of local action groups representatives working with the method LEADER
20. – 21. June 2013 Velké Meziříčí, the Czech Republic
We would like to invite you to a town located in the middle of Vysocina Region – to the town which connects the West and the East and the North and the South. Velke Mezirici is the geographical crossroads as well as the spiritual one. Like the European routes meet in this place so do the Jewish and Christian echoes of the past. A great highway bridge has become a symbol of the town. The myth of this construction work is transferred on a person, groups of people and the whole society. Under the bridge there is a river flowing as time goes by and people are walking over the bridge through space. This symbolism expresses the interconnection of two places otherwise inaccessible to humans – the meeting space and the interconnection of rural and urban areas. A new dimension is to be found here to overcome obstacles and draw the opposites closer together. This dimension has always represented a lot of positive and magical power.
- space for exchanging knowledge and experience, introducing examples of good practice
- focused on “education” in rural space
It is the fourth meeting of LAG representatives and other representatives of rural space who apply the Leader method. The meeting is a follow-up to previous three annual meetings held in Hradec nad Moravici, Stramberk and Levoca in Slovakia.
This event is held thanks to financial help of the Ministry of Agriculture within the National Rural Network platform. The event is organized by the National Network of Local Action Groups Czech Republic together with MAS MOST Vysociny.
