Village and regional development
In Hesse's largest county, villages and towns are attractive places to live for the whole family, and the county promotes their social, cultural and economic potential. Projects can be financially supported within the framework of village development.
Local action groups from the Waldeck-Frankenberg district are a strong driving force in regional development - and with the support of European funding they ensure the constant and sustainable further development of the region.
Our village has a future
"Our Village has a Future" is a nationwide competition that has been held in almost every German state since 1959. Its aim is to motivate people in rural areas to play an active role in shaping the future of their homeland - including in Waldeck-Frankenberg.
Without voluntary "caretakers", no association work would be possible, associations and communities of interest would not be able to work for the general public, or many a sensible project would have to be discontinued even before it was initiated.
Network for tolerance
The Network for Tolerance Waldeck-Frankenberg is dedicated to promoting tolerance and democracy in the Waldeck-Frankenberg district and working against racism, discrimination, intolerance and right-wing extremism.
The Waldeck-Frankenberg district is actively committed to promoting democracy and preventing extremism - and has set up a specialist unit for this purpose, which also works closely with the district's network for tolerance.
