The European Rural Parliament is a long-term campaign to express the voice of rural people in Europe; and to promote self-help and action by the rural people, in partnership with civil society and governments.
The campaign reaches a climax every two years with a gathering of rural people from all parts of the wider Europe. The next European Rural Parliament will be held in October 2017 in the Netherlands.
Throughout 2017, we are preparing for that event by strengthening the network, enriching our evidence through thematic working groups and supporting our national partners to hold national rural parliaments and other events.
We are convinced that rural Europe has a great potential to welcome refugees and migrants and provide a good life. We base this on the fact that many rural Europeans have become involved in welcoming activities and by that contributed in creating a better life for migrants and refugees to Europe. For the upcoming European Rural Parliament we wish to gather experiences, good examples and thoughts on what has been done and what can be done further in welcoming refugees and migrants in rural areas. We welcome everyone who has experience of participating in activities in rural areas with refugees and migrants to participate in the work.
