The Project “Creating of a Network of Emblematic Mediterranean Mountains” is implemented and financed in the frameworks of the LEADER approach of the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013.
The partners in the project are 4 Local Action Groups from France, Greece and Bulgaria – LAG Terres Romanes en Pays Catalan (France), LAG Pays Pyrenees Mediterranee (France), LAG Pieriki Anaptixiaki S.A.-O.L.A (Greece) and LAG Razlog (Bulgaria).
The Project also has 4 associated partners, namely Grand Site massif de Canigo (France), Grande Site Sainte Victoire (France), Agency for Development of Bergueda (Spain) and Piace Cibo Sano (Italy).
The network of partners represents 5 emblematic Mediterranean mountains:
Massif de Canigou (France)
Pirin mountain (Bulgaria)
Mount Olympus (Greece)
El Pedraforca (Spain)
The main goal of the project is to create a sustainable network of emblematic Mediterranean mountains through which the partners in the project shall exchange experience, know how and models of organisation of these territories, with strong tourist potential and at the same time they will share responsibility to preserve their fragile and precious ecosystems.
