Content of the seminar

Within the PADIMA project, 8 partners from 5 European countries are engaged in a survey on the current situation regarding policies and trends of depopulation in mountain areas. With the survey, they also identify the challenges, needs and prospects they face, and highlight their contributions to successful development of their mountain areas.

The main aim of the seminar was to improve the regional policies against depopulation through the transfer of successful initiatives in the field of education and training in mountain areas.

The seminar was attended by approximately 100 participants. The discussions contributed to a better understanding of mountain areas’ needs and opportunities in term of education and training. The debates were illustrated with example of successful initiatives already implemented in the partners’ regions, which contributed to a successful development of the area, to the attraction and integration of new inhabitants.

The input from participants was expected to bring up new ideas and recommendations. Room for debates was made, especially during the in-depth parallel workshop sessions on following topics in relation with the improvement of education and training treatment in regional policies: health and care sector, integration of migrants, environment care, biodiversity, agricultural sector and life-long learning.

Programme: English, French, Spanish, Italian
