Social Innovation

The macro theme 'Social Innovation' digs into the role of transfer of competences, community engagement, and knowledge exchange in revitalizing pastoral and rural life. Within this section, we present a diverse array of best practices aimed at fostering sustainable development through the transfer of skills, expertise, and traditional knowledge. From initiatives focused on social innovation to projects promoting the revalorization of pastoral and rural life, this section showcases innovative approaches to community empowerment and resilience-building. Here we highlight strategies for effective stakeholder engagement, emphasizing the importance of collaboration and partnership in driving positive change within pastoral communities. Additionally, we delve into efforts to recruit and empower new shepherds, ensuring the continuity of pastoral traditions and practices for future generations.
