Working together towards 2020

“Visions are the guiding principles of the present and they change the future.”

(Rainer J. Stawski)


In order to be able to further develop the Weinviertel region together, such a guiding principle is exactly what is needed. The vision of the future can only be defined by the people of the region themselves, as strategies are a vision for a better future for the region and thus the call for action for the next seven years in the Weinviertel region. In consideration of the regional foundations and the strengths and weaknesses of the region, the local development strategy was developed by the LEADER Region Weinviertel Ost team together with around 400 citizens as of autumn 2013. Thus, a basis could be created for the regional development over the next seven years in the eastern Weinviertel. Although the LEADER funding period 2007-2013 was very successfully made use of, it cannot be taken for granted that it will simply continue.


The local development strategy 2014-2020 of the LEADER region was submitted to the Federal Ministry for Agriculture and Forestry, the Environment and Water Resources on 31 October 2014. The 77 Austrian LEADER regions were then determined in June 2015, including the Region Weinviertel Ost.


The foundation stone has thus been laid for seven exciting years; it is now time to breathe life into the local development strategy with projects.
