Romanian project for small farmers wins European communication award
The Romanian project “Information networks for farmers in Transylvania” has received a European prize for communication on Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) issues.
ADEPT Foundation (Fundația ADEPT Transilvania) got the first prize in the category “Communication to stakeholders” for its work to improve small farmers access to information on EU funding for Rural Development projects.
The Award Ceremony took place on 10 December 2012 in Brussels during the CAP@50 Communication networking event, organised by the European Commission.
Competing in four different categories, 12 preselected projects (out of 118) had the opportunity to present their work to the international audience at the award ceremony who then voted to select the winners. The audience comprised of representatives from the European Commission, media, farmers associations and NGOs.
“Best practice example at its best!”
The jury described the ADEPT Foundation’s project as "an inspirational campaign, based on a deep analysis and understanding of the needs of small-scale farmers in Transylvania. A best-practice example at its best!".
The ADEPT Foundation project was financed by Innovation Norway, and by Orange Romania through its corporate social responsibility partnership with ADEPT Foundation.
