Descrizione del progettoPastoralism, rural food production, eco-tourism, promotion of cultural traditional heritage, have the potential to contribute towards employment and economic growth, as well as to the development in rural, peripheral or less-developed areas. These characteristics drive the demand for reliable and harmonised statistics within this field, as well as within the wider context of regional policy and sustainable development policy areas. The promotion of Cultural Heritage in 2018 can play a significant role in the development of European mountain regions; the infrastructures created for tourists contribute to the local development, while jobs that are created or maintained can counteract rural decline. The social and educational value of European cultural heritage will give its contribution to job creation, economic growth and social cohesion. The project SCHOLAR-SHEPHERD will be launched into the context of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, and the priority will be given to actions contributing to raising awareness of the importance of Europe's cultural heritage through education, informal and non-formal learning in mountain and rural areas.
Furthermore, SCHOLAR-SHEPHERD gives priority to enhance the access, participation and learning performance of disadvantaged learners, reducing disparities in learning outcomes. VET learners will be selected through a social inclusion perspective.
Scholar-Shepherd Pilot Course: 200 VET learners will be selected for participating to the training path. 60 participants for mobility in Italy (C2) will be primarily chosen from disadvantages areas and mountain regions with geographical obstacles - as described next pages.
