Global Eco is an international LEADER cooperation project funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The main objective of the project is to boost green economy and sustainable business in rural areas. In regional perspective, the project promotes Northern Satakunta as a bioregion that sets forth eco-innovations, self-sufficiency and green approaches, like local energy from renewable sources, local food and material circulation.
Activities of the project include networking with various private and public operators, organizing workshops, mapping and benchmarking best practices, and sharing information on bio and circular economy widely to the public and private sector.
The project partners form a transnational network of information exchange. LAG Aktiivinen Pohjois-Satakunta ry coordinates the cooperation. The other partners are:
Estonia, LAG Western-Harju Partnership www.vomentaga.ee
Italy, LAG Valle Umbra e Monti Sibillini www.valleumbraesibillini.com
Italy, LAG Trasimeno Orvietano www.galto.info
Latvia, LAG Aizkraukle District Partnership www.aizkrauklespartneriba.lv/en/
Portugal, LAG AD ELO www.adelo.pt
For disseminating the information gathered during the project, the partners have produced an e-book consisting of the best bio and circular economy cases mapped during the project. The book serves as an information pamphlet that will give enterprises, municipalities and authorities new ideas in making and supporting ecological and sustainable business. We hope that you will find it inspiring! You can download the e-book here.
