9 November 2009 – conclusions

Online meetings more frequently such as every 2-3 month, involvement of more Local Action Groups (LAG’s) and more focus on concrete projects will be the future direction for the work in the ERB Rural Development WG. This was concluded at the online meeting 9/11 2009.

Pomerania Region will prepare a proposal outlining a 2nd ERB LAG Conference, to take place in Pomerania Region in second half 2010. Once concluded a working group with representatives from LAg Blekinge, LAG Bornholm and Warmia-Mazury Region will assist in organising the conference.

A project idea from Karlshamn Municipality to promote the regional culinary heritage was discussed. Warmia-Mazury Region is positive to become a partner in a pre-project to be applied to the Norwegian Financial Mechanism. To connect the project to the European Culinary Heritage Network is crucial. The pre-project could finance a workshop in April, promotional activities in summer 2010 and preparation of a bigger project to be applied in the South Baltic programme in May 2010 – and then to start in the end of 2010.
