This objective will be achieved with the help of 3 activities:

The second objective of the project is to raise an international debate on the role of rural communities in supporting and supplementing EU external policies with new ideas and actions. This objective will be achieved through arranging an international debate of rural community leaders and representatives from local authorities on the role of small communities in the process of implementation of the EU external policies. The project results will touch people living in rural communities in Lithuania and Cyprus. Community leaders will be enabled and engaged into awareness raising campaigns for their community members.
