Title of the proposed project Four Seasons Derby - food tourism in rural area
Brief summary of the project idea

The objective of Four Seasons Derby - food tourism in rural area - project is to promote both local and international food tourism in the areas of participating LAGs. This transnational project brings food tourism opportunities close to local people and spreads European food culture traditions beyond national borders. The project enables the partners to exchange the best practices and discuss about event planning as a tool to promote food tourism. As a result, culinary events will propose a new approach to tourism.
The idea of the project is to help rural areas to increase their touristic potential, but also to help local producers to promote their produce and to exchange know-how with other stakeholders.
