Learn the Life - Erasmus project

The Lystbæk Association at Lystbækgaardnear Torstedhas for the second time received an EU Erasmus grant for international collaboration.

The intention is, among other things, to develop rural areas and promote the influx of local and non-resident tourists.

The project is called ”Learn the Life”.

We focus on improving communication skills in order to impart knowledge, craft knowhow, andthe values of the rural population’s cultural heritage (rural skills).

The other project partners are from Iceland, Norway, Croatia, Lithuania and France.

We look forward to a creative collaboration regarding rural area development, and cultural and experiential tourism in the moorland and in the company of animals and people.

On 26 and 27 March 2020, we expect to receive visitors from Lithuania, Iceland, Croatia, Norway, and France.

There will be workshops and lectures. A programme will soon be available.

If you would like to meet the people from the project or hear more about it, then please call Merete at (+45) 6012 6669
