Event 3: Linking Europe’s rural regions:
Rural economies built on natural ecosystems in Spain and Portugal

Event 3

Herdade do Freixo do Meio, near Lisbon, Portugal, 7 November 2018

The event in Portugal addresses the economic & ecologic impact of rural cross-border value chains based on natural ecosystems. It will include two panel debates, the first one focusing on the potential of the aromatic and medicinal plants sector to stimulate regional growth through cooperation. The second panel will bring together the experiences of key actors in cross-border value chains, such as the cork sector or the “Dehesa/Montado” ecosystem. The event also foresees a site visit to the cooperative farm Herdade do Freixo do Meio which currently manages 650Ha of oak and holm-oak plantation as well as various livestock.
