In Poland, the North Kaszuby FLAG supported the setting up of an experimental wind turbine in a local engineering company, helping to establish a new local energy supply, to promote economic diversification, and to create a new educational offer.
Durch eine Reihe miteinander verbundener Aktivitäten und innovativer Qualitätsmanagementmethoden stärkt eine FLAG die Kapazitäten lokaler Unternehmer, z. B. Fischzüchter, Gastronomen und Dienstleistungsanbieter im Bildungs- und Freizeitsektor, und ermutigt sie zur Zusammenarbeit.
A group of 9 inland and coastal FLAGs from Poland has found partners from Italy, Latvia and Lithuania to launch a cooperation project that entails the exchange of experience and joint actions, such as study visits to each of the areas involved along 2020-2021.
Cooperation activities are not mandatory in the Polish EMFF programme, but FLAGs are encouraged to undertake them. Cooperation is considered as a good way to facilitate learning by FLAGs and to contribute to achieving their strategic objectives, which strongly prioritise job creation, both within and outside the fisheries sector. In the previous period many Polish FLAGs already proved eager to learn from FLAGs in other Member States and to share their experience with them.
The sixteenth edition of the FARNET magazine explores sustainability, blue growth and the circular economy from a CLLD perspective. What have we learnt in the ten years since a CLLD approach was first introduced in fisheries areas under the EMFF? How can we position fisheries CLLD for the future? Is the circular economy key? These are just some of the questions addressed in this thought-provoking edition.
The FLAG is located in the North-Eastern part of Silesia and most municipalities are part of the Polish Jurassic Highland. There are 35 fish farms, of which 12 are quite large (and have over 20 ha of fish ponds).
