Sumár projektu:Rural area is often seen as an opposite to the city, urban space. In a rural country changes are constantly taking place and these are caused by groups of factors that make up the rural country - natural, cultural and anthropogenic components. The great importance of rural areas is that the rural landscape forms part of our heritage and is an important wittness to the past, and current relationships between man and the natural environment are building the rural environment. Not only in Slovakia, or in Visegrad countries, but accross Europe we can observe that rural areas are facing a decline in the importance of agriculture and outflow of population, and it is therefore necessary to address the revival of the countryside through its diversification. Rural areas, in general, have a big tourist potential, but very often lacking in strategy and complementary planning. Local food and wine can certainly be a vehicle for promoting the area - for each territory can be found some typical products: traditional food products and biodiverse products, local wines, handmade products etc. Considering above mentioned facts, AGATA project aims to establish the set of tools to help people from rural areas, decision makers and entrepreneurs jump-start early-stage services, which includes the methodology, decision-making tools, learning materials and other strategic-planned kits. The overall aim of this set of tools is to help grow the local agrotourist economy by creating a community of support for entrepreneurs and cultivating an environment where emerging startups can learn, test, create, scale and thrive.
