“Employment in the service of sustainable development”
Employment and Environment are two main preoccupations for the European community nowadays.
Will the mountainous areas, to resolve these new expectations, resist new policies favouring production and competitiveness? Will the 2000 Agenda (agricultural policy, rural development, structural funds and European enlargement) help these regions face these new preoccupations?
About the agricultural policy, is it possible to develop a multifunctional mountain agriculture? What kind of recommendations are envisioned? About the structural policy and rural development, how the reform’s proposals can sustainably valorise the livelihood of the mountain regions (human, natural, cultural, the quality of the areas and the products, the know-how and the traditions)? About the European enlargement, what are the perspectives for sustainable development in the mountain areas of the Central and Eastern European Countries? How will the applicants make use of the experience of the mountain regions of European Union?
