Title of the proposed project Leader as a tool for regional development, networking and participation
Brief summary of the project idea

I am interested in how other LAGs organize the participation and involvement of local people in the regional development. How do you do the "basic work" of Leader?

How do you organize a regional network / regional movement / common feeling / community?

How can we learn from each other?
How can we make a "Leader CLLD training"?

If more people learn about the CLLD method, than it can be used broader. Not only for EU funds.

Topics/ keywords of the project Bottom up process, participation, involvment, building a regional network.
Initial position / background / local context of the proposed project / the starting situation or local context in which the projects is going to operate

LAG managers are professionals in EU regulations, but what was our original task?
To organize a bottom up process in the region. To involve local people in the development of the region.

Lets focus on "Leader basics" again!
How do we do that? What are best practices in bottom up working?
