Objectives of the Work Group: Support the Organic Districts in the development of activities related to the start-up, management and organization of activities of promotion of the territory in terms of its natural, historical and cultural heritage, including gastronomy. An efficient integration of tourism and gastronomy within the Organic Districts provides a much-needed support to valorize the multifunctional dimension of the farming activity and its integration with different actors of the community (touristic agencies, cultural associations, restaurant owners). This can provide an important contribution to the overall Organic Districts sustainable development, provide a better understanding and value of the work, quality and lifestyle in rural areas and inspire the re-population of these areas.
