Valorisation of ancient farming techniques in resilient and sustainable agriculture (VALOR project), co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ programme, is a three-year project that aims to develop a framework of professional skills in resilient and sustainable agriculture and provide young farmers in particular with the necessary tools to undertake this type of activity through specific freely accessible online training courses.
VALOR is promoted by the Gran Sasso-Laga National Park Authority in cooperation with the Management Agency of the National Park of Olympus (Greece), the Natural Park of the Black Forest Centre-North (Germany), the University of Thessaly (Greece), Stefan Cel Mare Suceava University (Romania) and some international partners such as Makro, Consulting firm for management development (Turkey), the Forest Science and Technology Centre of Catalonia (Spain), Syntesis-Centre for Research and Education Ltd (Cyprus) and Integra Filder, Education Promotion Association (Germany).
Despite the pandemic’s discomforts and related restrictions, the project did not stop and more than 100 feedback from experts and farmers from all alliance member countries was collected. This was an excellent starting point and technical input for the construction of training courses in resilient agriculture.
