The primary goal of the RAW & GROW: Sustainable Development and Acceleration of Organic Production Enterprises (supported by Erasmus+ programme, Key Action 2, Adult strategic partnership supporting exchange of good practices) was to allow organizations to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to operate at transnational level, share and confront ideas.

The project “Raw & Grow” aimed through a strategic approach, highly participatory and engaging activities as well as through building the capacities of the participating organizations to empower adults to get into organic production as well as to develop and accelerate their startup enterprises by bringing them closer to this sustainable model of production. The project enabled learning by doing of the staff and initiated joint response to unemployment and promotion of organic production. It encompassed short-term trainings for staff as well as transnational meetings. 12 staff members took part in total of 3 short-term joint staff training events in Slovenia, France and Macedonia. The staff on the training events was directly involved in the work activities of the hosting organizations during the short-term mobility period, and thereby got an insight of the production itself, enhancing their knowledge in project management and managerial skills. During the short-term mobility in France and Slovenia, the Macedonian participants boosted their skills in organic production and became aware about its opportunities, whereas during the mobility of staff from Slovenia and France in Macedonia, the staff shared the positive practices from their work and as well as learned more about how to further promote this branch in their countries.

This program was develop with our partners New Deal Institut from France and Skrivnostni Otok from Slovenia.
