Dear Friend of the European Rural Parliament

As you will know, the Third European Rural Parliament will take place this year – on October 18-21 in Venhorst in the Netherlands. We are inviting you to let us know if you would like to attend this great event. At this stage, because spaces are limited, we are asking you to register your interest in attending at:

It will be a wonderful event, attended by our partners from 40 European countries, as well as policy makers and European level institutions. This will be an important opportunity to influence policy, build our network of active rural communities across Europe and make new connections.

The ERP Steering Group and Coordination Team travelled to Venhorst to meet with the Dutch

team and discuss plans for the forthcoming event.

All visits to Venhorst have been very constructive and we have been amazed to experience the enthusiasm and engagement by the Dutch team and the huge number of volunteers who are ready to assist in making the 3rd European Rural Parliament a success.

The Dutch team are continuing their work to prepare for the 3rd European Rural Parliament and are looking forward to welcoming 300 participants and show them how the Netherlands are dealing with the challenges within their rural areas. North Brabant has developed many cutting-edge ideas for their rural communities and economy, and will be inspirational to all who attend the 3rd European Rural Parliament.

The Dutch team also invites the participants to consider prolonging their stay in the Netherland to participate in the Dutch Design Week, which will start when the 3rd European Rural Parliament ends.
