4th European Rural Parliament
Deadline for registering for the 4th ERP Gathering in Asturias is approaching. Have you registered to participate? Or you might still have a chance to do so, due to our Spanish host has managed to increase funding, hence enabling more participants.
Preparations are ongoing – in Asturias where READER is preparing Field Visits as well as Workshops
You can read more in the latest ERP2019 Newsletter or find information at the ERP2019 official Website
Other ERP Partners are also involved in preparations: Many of our partners have participated in a survey to give us an idea as to “What shall ERP do? and how?” and “What is working? What is not? And How can you assist?”, and we very much appreciate you have taken the time. The result of the survey will be presented in Asturias and combined with a Partners meeting about the future of ERP.
ERP partners have also taken time to participate in a series of webinars discussing the updates of the ERP Manifesto and the formulation of the Peoples Declaration. Drafts for the Manifesto 2019 and for the Peoples Declaration will be posted on the ERP Website and presented and discussed at the 4th ERP in Asturias.

WELCOME TO THE EUROPEAN RURAL PARLIAMENT!
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.
