PRIDE: PARTNERSHIP FOR RURAL IMPROVEMENT & DEVELOPMENT IN EUROPE

PRIDE is supported by the EU Erasmus Plus programme and is an adult education staff mobility partnership.

Participants are drawn from a UK consortium of partners from (mainly) Northern England and Scotland like WICAT, National Trust, Wardell Armstrong, Natural England, Yorkshire Dales NP, Earth Doctors, Crosslanes, VAR Initiative,  Sublime Foundation,  The Environment Partnership, Hayton Castle, Forestry Commission  Moorforge and Woolclip.

The placements are fully funded apart from getting to the UK departure point.

All the places revolve around dedicated training courses from the ‘Green Village’ suite of certified units. They were created over a 3-year period by 8 EU partners led by Grampus Heritage. All the courses carry ECVET points as well as certification for CPD.

GRAMPUS Heritage and Training offer placements to teachers and trainees throughout Europe, seeking to initiate them into the Green Village partnership and way of thinking. Green Village comprises a number of countries working to protect their traditional practices of economic production, sustainable for communities and in harmony with the natural world. In this short film, GRAMPUS’ founder, Martin Clark, along with participants in the Erasmus Plus course run by Kato Drys Community Council in Cyprus – a Green Village partner, explain the four “pillars of rural sustainability” that form the basis of their work. The film spotlights Grampus Heritage and the Green Village international network partners Kato Drys Community Council and Lefkara Municipality. Green Village is about achieving environmental, cultural, social and economic sustainability for a community, a village, an organisation or a product or process.
