Conference constitutes a part of the joint CARDS 2003 Cross border project “Sustainable Development and the Strengthening of the Handicraft tradition in the Mt. Velebit Area, Croatia” whose goal is to promote sustainable development and biodiversity conservation in mountainous areas of Croatia and to analyse the presence of, raise awareness of and increase the market value of traditional products in the project area.

With this project we would like to fulfill the following objectives:

  • To network and exchange know-how within the area and with similar European areas
  • To conserve traditional products and prepare production for the common market of the EU
  • To start up and support income-generating activities through pilot projects

The Conference objective is to bring together all interested stakeholders and present best practice examples that can serve as models to local communities for the establishment of income-generating activities.
