It is conducted in the framework of the “Pilot program action Area Economy (PHR Wirtschaft)” which is a political instrument developed by the Swiss Economics Office (SECO) to promote territorial projects in Switzerland, and is therefore supported by the Swiss Confederation and the cantons of Vaud, Fribourg and Geneva.

The project objectives are:

-Contribute to increased exchanges between cities and rural areas

-Support local consumption initiatives
