The aim of the project is to raise the quality and competitiveness of the entire tourist supply of area of Vodnjan through networking and education of all the civil-social actors involved in the development of sustainable tourism and the creation of a unique tourist product of the town of Vodnjan.
To cultivate the land, preserve original sorts and give our visitors fresh and ecologically grown food, the association Istarsko-Ekomuzej from Vodnjan started its own farm. Due to having its own farm, the association can sell fruits and vegetables, self-seeding plants and seeds of old sorts.
Developing Innovative Network of Associations to Motivate Initiatives and Cooperation – DINAMIC – is a project which accepted 10 volunteers from Spain, Italy and France in Semptember and October of 2015, and is backed by the ''Erasmus+'' project of the European Union.
DINAMIC EVS is a project which aims to show the youth how to use the opportunities given by the european programs for development and wellbeing to selected communities by encouraging them to take an active role in that development.
The project is being carried out in three organisations which work together and bring experience and knowledge to each other: Informo Associaiton, Pou-Upa Vodnjan Dignano and the ''Istrian – ecomusem de Dignan'' association
Ten volunteers work in these three organisations, but at the same time they also work on different activities between these three organisations, while helping the local development.
Volunteers in the Ecomusem work on the preservation of traditional customs, arts and crafts and ecological sustainability in agriculture and ecotourism.
Through the program ''Colors of Autmn'' in 2015, we hosted and organized outdoor classes and entertaining programs for more than 800 children from Istria. Other than riding on a cart pulled by donkeys, the children, through an interactive and educative walk around the town, discovered old customs and landmarks of Vodnjan.
The manifestation 1st Year of valorization of Vodnjan's traditions launched in 2015 with the goal of bringing the Ecomuseum, work and goals of the association closer to the community. Throughout the manifestation, there were held several ''Evenings of traditional crafts'' where the people of Vodnjan could demonstrate their crafts and customs.
