The Expand Your Horizons events will provide relevant information to rural dwellers who wish to explore new possibilities for improved economic and social development for their own lives and for the betterment of their communities.
Teagasc and the NRN believe that a diverse and energetic farming industry will provide a sustainable rural environment for future generations. Farmers want to do much more than survive. They want to thrive.
Farm resilience is about equipping the Irish farm family to absorb and recover from shocks and stresses to their agricultural production and livelihoods. By expanding your horizons you will broaden your outlook on life and its possibilities.
Have you considered setting up a tourism or food business? Are you aware of all the available benefits and supports for farm families? Would you be interested in learning a new skill? If you, or members of your family are looking to ‘Expand your Horizons’, explore on or off- farm business possibilities, re-train or up-skill for a new form of employment, or explore what funding is available via the LEADER Programme or Rural Development Programme, join Teagasc and the NRN as they explore what your area has to offer you, as you ‘Expand your Horizons’.
Rural agencies, who provide services such as up-skilling, social and economic development and education provision, will provide information on their services and funding opportunities. Participating stakeholder agencies including Local Action Groups, Local Enterprise Offices, Citizens Information, Mental Health Ireland, Money and Advice Bureaus, Education and Training Boards, Fáilte Ireland and Inland Fisheries Ireland, will be on hand to provide a flavour of the opportunities they offer and the role they play in improving the viability of rural areas.
