The Whole Village Project is created by its people and made to last the passing of time. A whole village is a bee’s nest where each has a specific task. The survival and healthy evolution of the nest is the result of everybody working together.
This is the core concept of the MET’s oldest projects, The Whole Village Project – a program of sustainable rural development.
The village becomes “whole” after three types of activities have been implemented:
- The restoration of the cultural heritage: buildings, landscape, crafts and traditional farming.
- The development of the local entrepreneurial skills by supporting small rural businesses, the professional qualification of the locals and creating job opportunities.
- The development of sustainable cultural tourism by promoting the rural heritage, natural landscape exploration, traditional accommodation, ecological produce and the overall unique experience of country side life.
