ERP and its partners have been asked to contribute
to the ”Future of Rural Europe 2050” strategy and process in EU and Europe. It is very important to be present and raise our views on the steps to take as well as the policies and tools to develop. The continuing exodus, climate issues, new technologies, the ”smart” development processes bring us to think about change management on the side of the advocacy work. This change should not lead to additional weakening of rural areas.
