Describe your region – “Fa scopre u to territoriu”

In January 2013, ODARC organised a competition for young journalists with the aim of increasing local rural awareness. Eight secondary schools from as many different regions took part in the contest.

The Corsican Office for Rural and Agricultural Development understands the importance of introducing the younger generation to agriculture, careers in farming and the richness of rural areas; they have demonstrated this through its involvement in raising awaireness of rural and agricultural life and issues in schools.
