Rural Actors for Health
"Rural Actors for Health" aims to find best practices in terms of rural contributions to human health. The main focus is the investigation and promotion of local knowledge on medicinal and spice plants. We aim to explore possibilities for valorizing this knowledge as an option for engagement of rural actors. This is not only a prerequisite for creating additional income but also for preserving and safeguarding this knowledge.
