Within the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019, event which took place in Brussels from 7th-10th October, the project MD.net participated organizing a Workshop on Mediterranean Diet as development tool, and a Tasting Session of a variety of dishes from the Mediterranean area.
The main objective of the Workshop was to capitalize MD.net and discuss with the audience how to better exploit Mediterranean Diet for the economic development of rural areas of ther Mediterranean Region. The discussion focused on 3 thematics: Innovation, Governance and Branding. During the discussion of each of the three groups, the audience recommeded diverse approaches to better exploit Mediterranean Diet for the economic development of rural areas in the Mediterranean Region.
As part of the Tasting Session, the MD.net partners offered the attendees a fine selection of Mediterranean food and drinks in a relaxed social enviroment that included chats about the amazing lifestyle and culture of the Mediterranean region, and dancing as a celebration of life. From the MD.net partnership, we hope our guests returned to their homeland willing to adopt our Mediterranean Diet.
