Rural Tourism for Stronger Local Communities

Journalists from Montenegrin electronic media visited non-governmental organisations in northern Montenegro, which, as part of the ReLOaD initiative, organised improved offers in rural tourism. Together with representatives from the European Delegation and UNDP, they visited new hiking trails in Bjelasica and Sinjajevina, a medicinal plant nursery, and a practical beekeeping facility near Kolasin. They also participated in workshops on solar cooking and natural cosmetics production in Pljevlja.


Through the ReLOaD2 grants, 42 non-governmental organisations in Montenegro implemented projects in the past year that truly enhance the quality of life in local communities. A hiking trail was opened in Vranjina, a digital tourist guide was created for Budva, the first Social Club for people with disabilities was established in Niksic, a Pensioners Club was launched in Andrijevica, landfills were removed in Zagarac, a documentary dedicated to the palm trees of Boka Bay was filmed, and much more. During this study trip, media representatives were presented with the work of non-governmental organisations whose ideas contribute to reducing the migration of citizens from the north to other cities and countries.
