Agrimultifunctionality II is a project financed by DG Education and Culture, within the Lifelong Learning Programme. The AgriMultifunctionality II project aims to address the problems of an ageing farm workforce and the ongoing flow of young people out of the countryside, both of which are serious challenges to the sustainability of the European rural economy.
The short-term target group of the project is young farmers, the long-term target group being institutions, decision-makers and organisations dealing with agriculture at European, national and local levels. The protection of existing jobs and the creation of new rural jobs will be immediate consequences of the project, which will contribute to stopping the exodus from rural areas and to providing better opportunities for young farmers in rural areas. In the long term, an enhanced economic diversification is expected to make rural areas more attractive and competitive. CEJA is the leader partner of the project and is part of a synergy with Granaforma Institute from Sevilla, IfLS Institute from Germany, CIPA-AT from Italy. CEJA task is to collect the information through our extended network of organisations in each member country, to contact the young farmers, to manage the budget and co-operate in the organisation of regular meeting.
