CLLD conference in Brussels, 3-4 December

500 stakeholders of CLLD from rural, urban and fisheries areas met in Brussels to discuss achievements and future of this approach in the conference “Post 2020 – Local Action in a changing world”.

Since the start of the 2014-2020 programme period, the European Commission and its services organise annually a big transnational event for actors involved in CLLD financed from the four EU Funds (EAFRD, EMFF, ESF and ERDF). In 2019 it was again the turn of DG MARE and FARNET to organise such an event.

One of the highlights was an exhibition of 40 CLLD projects funded from the different Funds, focusing on such themes as “Eating local”, “Local jobs and services”, “Going circular”, “Going green”, “Mobilising knowledge”, “Keeping tourism sustainable”, “Smart communities”, “Inclusive communities”. The best projects received their awards from the new European Commissioner for the Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Virginijus Sinkevičius.
