ERSG 2014 - Living countryside in BEAUFORTAIN !

Forum Synergies’ European Rural Sustainability Gathering took place in Beaufortain territory (Savoie district in Rhones-Alpes - France), from 18 to 21 September 2014.

This three-day gathering was an excellent opportunity to meet people with a spirit of action for sustainable rural development from across Europe. We visited good examples of local sustainable development in a region with a strong civil society activity. It was co-organised with Savoie Vivante, an association active in this County since 1986 and with a strong experience in support of community life, and local social policy, in environmental educational and sustainable development, as well as on territorial dialogue and mediation.

We also discussed current Forum Synergies program and activities such as: the future of youth in rural areas, local food chains and hygiene rules, territorial civic dialogue, as well as herbs and public health.
