Project ‘Há festa no Campo’, EcoGerminar

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The Portuguese Association EcoGerminar promotes local development and a solidary economy through the capacity building of the commu-nities in the region of Castelo Branco, Portugal. In a context marked by the steady loss of services, traditions and by an ageing population at risk of isolation and exclusion, the project ‘Há festa no campo’ (‘There is a celebration in the countryside’) fosters the cultural and social revi-talisation of 4 villages: Freixial and Juncal do Campo, Chão da Vã and Barbaído, highlighting its intangible and cultural heritage. This project promotes community meetings, training workshops, participatory assemblies, fairs and expositions, preserving the relation with the local traditions, memories and festivities.
