Welcome to the Website of the European Rural Parliament Initiative!
The second European Rural Parliament will be held in the beautiful small town of Schärding in Austria, 4 to 6 November 2015. 300 delegates are expected, from over 40 European countries.
The aim of the European Rural Parliament is
- To strengthen the voice of the rural communities of Europe, and to ensure that the interests and well-being of these communities are strongly reflected in national and European policies
- To promote self-help, common understanding, solidarity, exchange of good practice and cooperation among rural communities throughout Europe.
The campaign to prepare for the second European Rural Parliament was launched on 1 January 2015, and embraces action in more than 30 European countries – see Calendar on this page.
The climax of the campaign will be the ERP 2015 Gathering, to be held at the beautiful small town of Schärding in Austria on 4-6 November 2015.
The European Rural Parliament is co-initiated by the European Rural Community Alliance, PREPARE Partnership for Rural Europe, and European LEADER Association for Rural Development
