Cooperation for the good of rural communties!

Innovative Village Partners

Innovative Village Leader Cooperation Project is a consortium where every partner has its own funding. All partners share a common goal and common activities. However, project partners may also carry out their own activities.

North East Rural Development Partnership in Northern Ireland (GB), Tartumaa Arendusselts in Estonia, LAG Viisari and LAG JyväsRiihi together with JAMK University of Applied Sciences work together in order to develop innovative community based service ideas and to increase experiences of international cooperation and rural development in their organisations and in the rural communties they work with.
