Newsletter #2 by TreasureHunt Erasmus+ Project
train agriculture entrepreneurs
on developing skills and competences
to innovate their business
connecting agriculture and tourism
The objective of TreasureHunt is to train agriculture entrepreneurs on developing skills and competences to innovate their business by connecting agriculture and tourism, two relevant sectors for EU economy.
The aim is to make agritourism an attractive business for young entrepreneurs in combination with other land-based businesses: increasing the interest for language learning among potential rural entrepreneurs by using interdisciplinary teaching methods and building a strong network for the exchange of good practices in agritourism.
The key objective is to list and prioritise the key competences the agricultural entrepreneurs should possess in order to be able to develop new tourist offers based on agriculture and the experiences done in agricultural world. It consists of a collection of topics that are connected from one side with specific skills and from the other with learning and training methodologies.
It is a set of guidelines and methodologies on how to deliver the training but also a collection of tools and topics/competences on which the training will focus, by using theoretical lessons, group workshops, practical experiences and personal coaching. Such mixed approach helps the agricultural entrepreneurs to grasp all aspects of the crossfertilization of agriculture and tourism and how to develop new tourist offers based on the experiences of rural life.
