Budget: 14.700 €
Programme: Local Action Group “From Pohorje to Bohor”
Web portal (“podezelje” stands for “countryside” in Slovenian) was set up to present the tourist and countryside offer of the area. On the portal is presented natural and cultural heritage, tourist providers, farmers who produce ecological vegetables and fruits, craftsmen, associations and organizations which work on preservation of cultural heritage, biking and hiking routes. Part of the portal is also online shop with products from the area.
As a part of the project we organize workshops for farmers, tourist providers, associations and other organizations in the area, where we inform and teach them about the importance of the Internet for their work, and how the portal can help them.
