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 work with some of the themes defined in the Manifesto is underway. Most of the theme leaders have sent out surveys which you all are very welcome to take part in. 

As part of the thematic work some of the theme leaders are preparing or have held international events to discuss and share topics within their specific theme. On the ERP Website you’ll find the different themes under the sub-page: Campaign>Thematic activities. And you’ll be able to learn more about both surveys and events for each theme, as it progresses.
