  2. Develop of a handbook including information, guidelines, best practice examples and recommendation how CSR can be implemented in strategic development and daily work of micro enterprises and SMEs in rural tourism;
  3. Development of a approx. 10 modules containing training course;
  4. A creation of a political strategy paper containing findings and experiences of the project.
