The project represents a contemporary integrated approach to sustainable cohabitation of young people and eco-sensitive rural border areas. Until present several attempts have been proposed in order to assure the coexistence of human activities and natural procedures in areas of special ecological and environmental aspect. The project aims in developing one template Environmental Management System for cross-border environmental important rural areas, seeking however to highlight activities and incentives leading to financial viability for the rural populations.

The focus will be set on the youngers, since they tend, not only to be the more active members of each society, but also the most receiving and of course the positive turns are going to be more long lasting. From these SMEs (existing or potential) the priority will be given to those active in bio-agricultural sector, as such cases, strongly relate with natural resources consumption, or preservation, and therefore set a convenient starting point.

The good practices will indicate the needed improvements on local and regional environment policies related to spatial planning, mobility, natural resources management and social cohesion. Also it will have the potential to work as a valuable tool for measuring border region development and sustainability. Finally it is going to support the struggle of local societies in keeping their younger members in ground and active.
