Helping rural areas to meet the economic, social and environmental challenges of the 21st century has become an overall EU priority. The Rural Development Policy (2007-2013) focuses on three thematic axes, of which especially the third axis ‘improving quality of life and diversification of the rural economy’ promotes training, information and entrepreneurship for women, young people and older workers (EU Council Decision, 2006).
Our project aims at addressing these priorities by disseminating, and thus providing to European young farmers, a training tool based on case studies designed to adapt a farm to the multifunctionality concept or to start a multifunctional farm
