#ECFN #Erasmus+ #ErasmusPlus
The project will be an Erasmus Plus KA2 VET - Small-scale partnerships according to Erasmus Plus Programme rules.
The fundamental objective of the project is to create an open European network, formed by young aspiring farmers, for the promotion of circular agriculture, through cooperation with local institutions, media, associations and training centers; the will is also to keep this network active even after the end of the project activities, thanks to targeted fundraising campaigns and crowdsourcing platforms on the web.
The activities consist of 4 phases:
1) planning and preparation activities;
2) implementation of local activities and transnational mobility (within which there will be 3 mobility to be held in Lublin, Drama and Rome);
3) implementation of measures to ensure the management, effectiveness and quality of the project;
4) activities to evaluate and share the final results of the project.
The expected results are:
A) a manual of good practices for aspiring circular farmers called "The Green Circle" to be made available as an open educational resource;
B) creation of a motivational story video on the web to spread the principles of circular agriculture and encourage young people to undertake this profession, through a collection of short video tutorials, demonstrative of some sustainable agricultural practices, entitled "How to be a circular farmer".
