The importance of eco-innovations in wine production has risen exponentially in recent years and is key to economic growth for the region of Drama, a border region in the north of Greece. At the Youth Forum, Drama Chamber has presented drivers of eco-innovation in the Greek wine industry. We have heard about other initiatives to innovate the economy of border regions through cross-border cooperation, and exchanged on innovative projects in various regions, and what innovation is for young persons. The Youth Forum has also been an occasion to update AEBR’s Youth Charter for Cross-Border Cooperation.
Along with workshops and discussions on cross-border cooperation, participants have experienced and learned about modern wine production methods as examples of innovations to boost regional economies – including visiting various local wineries.Back to overview
