Educating in the catering sector in 3 remote areas to save cultivated landscape
The support of a sustainable rural tourism as a basis for a stronger economy is crucial.But rural tourism is mostly attracted by the agriculturally shaped, cultivated landscape.Through the globalised agriculture and out-migration the basis for agricultural productionin Europe shrinks, hence the cultivated landscapes changes and so the basis for ruraltourism. One solution for this problem is, to strengthen sales of regional products andservices. The catering sector has all preconditions to fulfil this task. Because of fashion,migration and other reasons most people working in the rural catering sector have lostthe knowledge of the regional products and their use.Edu-Cate refers to the problem of low economical chances in rural areas of Europe withall related topics such as unemployment, out-migration, infrastructure (such as adulteducational/ vocational trainings centers, libraries etc.).
