Between 20th and 25th of March 2017 representatives of MESHTRA participated in the international workshop SUPPORTING YOUTH ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP THROUGH RURAL HERITAGE on the island of Brač, Croatia. The event was carried out under the leadership of YCARHe and with the support of ERASMUS+. The objectives of the training were exploring the cultural heritage of the island, discovering connections between it, the natural resources and the economy of the region. As a final product we created plans for sustainable development incorporating cultural heritage protection, optimizing the use of resources and improving living conditions.
