National Partners are membership-based civil society organizations. Their membership structure varies between countries, including:

  • rural village movements with wide membership of the rural communities – gathered at local, regional and national levels to support rural areas and people
  • a forum or network of national or regional organisations representing different sectors of rural society, each with its own membership
  • networks of Local Action Groups (LAGs) - partnerships between private, civil and public sectors, operating with the LEADER method, to offer advice and support to rural entrepreneurs, communities and voluntary groups, which serve many thousands of rural citizens.

Through these membership structures, the partner organisations have both a commitment, and a built-in mechanism, to disseminate information, ideas, practical examples and support to and from rural communities and citizens across Europe.
