Objectives of local development strategy

The main objective for rural development action is to create possibilities for comfortable rural living conditions and better prerequisites for operation for livelihoods.

Our local development strategy is called Loisto 2014-2020. Loisto means light in english and the logo of the strategy is a lighthouse. In Loisto, there are four target themes:

  • Employment for the people
  • Active daily life
  • The environment in which we live in
  • Intangible capital and the meeting of cultures
