Objectives and Strategy

That is why the NewTrailJobs partnership wants to work out the chances of regional and local development by sustainable and cultural tourism on greentrails, culture trails and foodtrails in rural areas by vocational training, stimulating of entrepreneurship and strong local cooperation of the stakeholder (competence of communication and marketing).

The NewCultJob partners are coming from these regions and are just organizing or are planning to organize new so called cult-, food- or greentrails. These trails shall offer tourists and other guests an opportunity to take active part in the agricultural- and foodproduction as well as in cultural live or exploring the nature and landscapes. In some cases all opportunities are combined.

These trails are also offering a huge opportunity for rural population to be entrepreneur or finding new jobs along them and at least new incomes. This could be in accommodation, inns, foodproduction, guiding, rental of bikes or boats as well as in marketing. These regions can also find new attractiveness for the move of new citizens. But these opportunities are in the same time big challenges for the education and training of people, which are often not skilled for this kind of touristic services, because they are segregated or in these areas don’t exist vocational and adult training opportunities.

The NewTrailJob partnership will now exchange their experiences and also explore the demands for vocational education and training and also of informal and non formal learning methods for segregated people like young skilled and not skilled unemployed, women and also old employees.

The NewTrailJob partnership will firstly make a short research concerning existing training methods, instruments and modules in existing good running trails as kind of best-practice analysis. They will share and exchange these experiences. In a second step they explore the concrete level of existing resources and demands of training in their trail-regions with interviews and questionnaires. They will develop and test local workshops and seminars to attract inactive people to be more open for vocational education and training and to identify barriers. At least the consortium will define concrete framework conditions for the vocational education and training in rural areas and demands for curricula, methods and instruments. The consortium will later on prepare an application under a Leonardo development of innovation program.
