Around 2,400 LEADER regions provided rural incentives throughout Europe from 2007-2013. The same is expected for the current programme. Learning from this wealth of experience, getting to know best-practice projects, but also not making the errors which have led to problems is the immediate added value for European exchange programmes. Furthermore, we quote the Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso): “If we succeed in looking at the world as a network, we will cease to see everything in just black and white.”


The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD) links the participating interest groups throughout the European Union with rural development. The ENRD promotes the expansion and exchange of knowledge, facilitates the dissemination of information and promotes cooperation in rural Europe.

“LEADER on tour” should offer additional networking opportunities in the period 2014-2020. This initiative is aimed at employees of Local Action Groups (LAGs) in Europe. The overarching objective is the transfer of know-how between the LAGs and a professional exchange of experience in order to set an organised learning process in motion. Participating LAGs offer packages on the exchange of experience and the transfer of knowledge through "LEADER on tour".
