Welcome to the website of this fast growing and unique movement, rooted in and working for the interests of the rural people and communities of Europe.

The European Rural Parliament ERP 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. Between the gatherings we co-operate across Europe to identify and report key rural issues and implement the recommendations of the biennial gathering. The ERP began with the first gathering in 2013 and has since held gatherings in 2015 and 2017. The next gathering will be in 2019.

The ERP is a partnership initiative of 3 European-wide networks: European Rural Community Alliance ERCA; PREPARE Partnership for Rural Europe; European Leader Association for Rural Europe ELARD. It involves National Partners in 40 countries and 5 European-wide networks, civil society organisations working to support their rural areas.
