6 study tours in 6 countries
Netherlands - Norway - France - Italy - Spain - UK
BOND organised 6 study tours and visits to the key selected sites in 6 countries (Netherlands, Norway, France, Italy, Spain, and the UK). The face to face encounters allowed common sharing and exploration of practices, between those who have successfully reached higher levels of aggregation and governance, having acquired a stronger position in negotiation and policy design, and those who are in the process of engaging in more collective practice, be it individuals, groups, cooperatives and other entities in countries where the level of organisation is considered low.
These immersions and interactions benefited a total of 60 representatives of farmers and land managers groups and entities, including group leaders, facilitators, intermediates etc., able to bring back home to their own countries the knowledge and experiences acquired during the trips. More specifically these representatives have developed materials documenting the visits in various forms: reports, recorded interviews, videos, posters, photo libraries etc. The study tours contributed to developing closer ties between the different stakeholders and the creation of interregional networks, using social media platforms.
