Our mission is to promote initiatives and activities aimed at the economic, social and cultural growth of the Oltrepo Pavese community by leveraging specific local resources.
The main activity of the Foundation as Local Action Group consists in activating Axis IV Leader of the Lombardy Region’s Rural Development Programme. A Local Development Plan, “Oltrepo Pavese, un territorio in movemento” (“Oltrepo Pavese, territory on the move”) is the means to do this.
The aim of the plan is to promote integrated, endogenic and sustainable development of rural and mountain areas and as a result to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants. In the mountains and hills of the alto Oltrepo Pavese area in particular, the Foundation has been promoting local development for over 10 years and has created a network of public and private sector actors, who are actively involved in rural development.
