От 23 до 30 септември сдружение "Деветашко плато" беше домакин на работно посещение на група шотландски специалисти по програма Еразъм +. Разнообразната програма, подготвена от нас, ги запозна с природни и културни забележителности в България, и специално с работата на сдружението ни в района на селата по Деветашко плато. Посетихме още Национален парк "Централен Балкан", опитаха троянска сливова по време на Фестивала на сливата в Троян, дегустираха вино в Сухиндол, разгледаха Ловеч, Етъра, Хисаря и София. Ето и част от отзивите, които споделиха с изпращащата организация АРЧ: " It was such a privilege to spend a week in Bulgaria with our group and with Velis and her team. Velis was a star throughout. She was always attentive, friendly and hospitable and her knowledge of the history, culture and environment of Bulgaria was impressive, and it really helped us to appreciate and make the most of our trip. Velis looked after us extremely well and, whilst we largely stuck to the itinerary, she was also flexible and adjusted plans to fit in with our wishes. Staying in the Bilkarskata guest house was a highlight and it was great to see businesses such as this taking off as a result of the work of the Devetaki Plateau Association. The food there was exceptional and it showed how local produce was reflected in the various dishes we ate. This connection between the people and their environment was apparent throughout the trip, from the food and drink to the various festivals and ceramics and crafts. "
