European Grundtvig Program

Year end European Grundtvig program that would have allowed a twenty professionals, artists, elected officials, craftsmen, volunteers and others around the CAN, having visited other European initiatives since rurality also promote development through production / artistic and cultural diffusion. 

So far the project has enabled the centers visited: ET4U of vember (Jutland, Denmark), The Pommerie / Appelboom Saint-Sétiers (Limousin, France); Crossing Cultural and Z.oneMagione (Umbria, Italy); The next May will be the last visit to La Chambre d'Eau Le Favril (Nord, France). CAN was the first center that hosted this round of meetings in June 2013. 

The project is still very interesting for all who participated: other rural areas, other ways of relating to the land, other ways to organize other programs and activities ... Everything learning from the exchange of experiences and points of view from different parts of Europe. Despite having different specificities, share a rural reality!
