Proposed cooperation: The Italian dello Stretto FLAG from Calabria is urgently looking for partners for a transnational cooperation project called SHADES, or “Sustainable and Holistic Approaches to Development in European Seaboards”. The project focuses on Integrated Coastal Management (ICM and aims to facilitate an exchange of information and know-how on ICM and develop guidelines for mainstreaming integrated coastal management in partners’ areas. Please contact the FLAG by the 23rd December 2013 if this area of work is of interest to you. 

Cooperation Factsheet - Integrated Coastal Management  

Proposed cooperation: Community gardens and Community Supported Agriculture are now well established concepts, but in the Pays Marennes Oléron the association IODDE, a partner of local FLAG is reflecting on the potential to develop a form of community or shared aquaculture.

Cooperation factsheet

The region is well known for the production of oysters, which were traditionally farmed in ponds called “claires” that are created in marshes and rely on tides and sluices to create optimum growing conditions. Many are now abandoned or serve other purposes, but the FLAG is exploring the possibility of creating shared production entities that would help restore these abandoned ponds, enabling shareholders to learn about the production and harvesting techniques and participate in sustaining a local environmental service.

The FLAG would like to learn from other similar initiatives elsewhere in Europe, such as in the Danish FLAG Djursland area (project Sea-garden of Ebeltoft Vig )

If your FLAG or partners would like to participate in this exchange, contact the FLAG, the project promoter, or the FARNET Support Unit.
