Post-2020: Local action in a changing world
rganised in collaboration with DGs EMPL, REGIO and AGRI, the event will showcase how thousands of citizens are successfully using the “bottom-up” approach for sustainable development in their areas, with the support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund.
Launched in rural areas with LEADER almost 30 years ago, successfully trialled in fisheries and aquaculture areas in 2007-2013, and integrated for the first time under all European Social and Investment Funds in the 2014-2020 programming period, the concrete results of CLLD will be put in the spotlight. An exhibition of 40 different CLLD-supported projects, thematic working groups and a panel discussion between local beneficiaries and high-level decision-makers will all contribute to the first-ever glimpse of how CLLD is changing lives in urban, rural and coastal areas.
450 participants, including Local Action Groups managing CLLD funds, project beneficiaries, administrations, decision makers and experts from different fields, will come together to reflect on how CLLD has and can continue to support local action in a world in transition, fostering more environmentally and economically sustainable - and inclusive - communities.
