    Cooperation is strongly encouraged in Greece and the proposal of at least one (inter-territorial or transnational) cooperation project was a compulsory element of the application process for candidate FLAGs to receive EMFF funding.

    FR - FLAG Cooperation in France

    02/02/2017
    - Cooperation MS Fiche
    Cooperation is strongly encouraged by the programme authorities in France and FLAGs were required to lay out their plans for cooperation within their local development strategies in their bid to gain EMFF funding. In some cases, cooperation is viewed as a transversal tool to strengthen the impact of all areas of FLAG work and, in other cases, cooperation is programmed as an area of work in its own right with specific objectives.

  • Gdansk fish market 1

    Reviving the tradition of fish markets in Gdansk

    30/12/2016
    - Good Practice Short Story
    Three FLAGs from the Pomorskie region have helped create a new platform for fishermen to promote and sell their products by reviving the ancient tradition of the fish market, which had previously existed in Gdansk from 1343 until 1945. The market is open in August, at the height of the tourist season. Fishermen and fishmongers make their way to the market area in the centre of Gdansk’s old town in traditional fishing boats, wearing traditional costumes. Once on site, they organise a host of activities, including fish-tasting and fish-selling, culinary demonstrations and contests (filleting, rolling-up etc.), the showcasing of traditional net-mending and boat-making skills, as well as an open-air exhibition.

    The FLAG area covers the entire municipality of Norddjurs, which is notable for its long coastline, made up of sandy beaches – like much of the Danish coastline. This flat coastal landscape attracts tourists from Norway and Germany – as well as domestic visitors. Tourism is the area’s dominant sector.
