Pre-conference programme

 MakeLearn 2012 pre-conference programme  

»Regional economic development through local heritage, knowledge, and learning«

Wednesday, 20 June 2012, 16:00-18:00 at the International School for Social and Business Studies



Forum on "Regional economic development through local heritage, knowledge and learning" presents opportunities and strategies to promote and raise the profile of the region by emphasizing tradition and typical regional products and services. Special emphasis is put on a very successful project "OTOP (One Town One Product)", which takes place in Thailand with the help of the King, and which is today recognized by tourists in Thailand at every step. By this project individual regions identify themselves through specific products and thus contribute to the visibility of the region. Parallel to the OTOP project the Network business incubator Vrelec in Rogaska Slatina (glassworks, tourism services, etc.) and the Centre for Development Litija and their project "Heart of Slovenia" is also presented.
