A1: Project management (continue activity implemented by The Management Committee)
A2: Design and develop the intellectual outputs: a curricula, manual and supplements for rural entrepreneurship through producing and valorising of herbs that are endangered or available only from spontaneous flora (involve all partners, 18 months).
- 2.1 Set up 20 case studies (20 experimental plantings with herbs that are endangered or available only from spontaneous flora), monitor the producing processes of herbs and record the evidences for each stage and collect the data (text, photos, video). This case studies will be established in Romania and require 8 months (a full cycle of agriculture production which must start in February-April) for implementing and monitoring.
- 2.2 Elaborate the manual, the supplement and the training curricula. After the data for the case studies are collected, the team members will design the educational instruments in a very practical approach, using text, photo and video content in order to facilitate an extremely easy understanding of terms, and provide a concrete action plan for the target group.
- 2.3 Evaluate and correct the intellectual outputs through tests, application on target group, questionnaires applied in order to evaluate the understanding level and the ease of turning the learning into practice that generates sources of income.
A3: Implementing the training in rural entrepreneurship through producing and valorizing of medicinal and aromatic plants to 200 adults from the target group (adult NEETs). This training will be implemented by Eco Herbal, ACE-ES RO and LLU, in the testing period of the intellectual outputs, (months 17-19), but also after the completion of the education tools (months 20-24). The partners involved in this activity have already identified the target group. The main objective of this activity is to deliver an innovative training for the target group, with long-term effects, in order to raise the education level in rural areas and to support the establishment of new farms. The training will consist of 25% nonformal training and 75% and practical activities where the participants must apply the action plan described in the manual. The training is interactive and practical, rather than theoretical, involves and stimulates the participants, so that after the training they will obtain knowledge about how to produce and generate income for their families and will be able to practice the activities described in the educational tools by themselves.
A4: Organize disseminating activities.
- 4.1. Elaborate the dissemination strategy, including the deliverables that will be distributed in order to promote the project objectives and results.
- 4.2. Identify and select 1200 participants interested in rural and social development for 2 multiplier events. The multiplier events will be organized as international conferences by LLU in the 20th month, and by GA in the 23th month, and will assure the transferability of the intellectual outputs.
- 4.3. Disseminate the project outputs to 100 stakeholders, policy and decision-makers, social partners, public and private organisations for adult education through every possible communication channel. Each partner will undertake a number of local dissemination suitable for its local and professional network and target group, which may include presentations in seminars or professional meetings.
- 4.4. Create an online platform for the project, upload information and project outputs on the online platform and promote in internationally through Google Adwords.
