The journalists were introduced with the key activities planned in the frame of the project, LEADER approach – a European model for rural development and issues related to natural resources of KEDA Municipality. The second half of the day was dedicated to the field visit in the village Merisi, where the journalists were introduced with the different problems because of unsustainable use of natural resources. During field trip, there was a discussion on tourism development potential of Merisi village, which has potential to reduce negative impact on environment and create alternative source of income for local population.
