Soon an Instagram activity will be launched as well.

The European Commission is undertaking a consultation on the future of Europe. The ERP is doing its own survey, related to this.  Completing our survey will help you to answer to the official version. The results will also input to our ROAD activities for policy purposes.  Additional questions are attached at the end of the survey. Give your answers from a rural people’s perspective. This will give ERP ideas on what kind of advocacy activities are needed from people´s perspective. When answering open-ended questions, please give short answers for ERP-purposes.

Below is the link to the official EC survey (noted by EC, that this survey has been drafted by citizens themselves)

It is a great pleasure to announce the host of the 4th European Rural Parliament. This will be held in Asturias in Spain, hosted by READER, the Asturian Rural Development Network and their partners, in association with ERP Partner REDR, the Spanish Network for Rural Development. It will take place 6-9 November 2019, in the village of Candás in Carreño municipality in the region of Cabo Peñas.

Congratulations to our Spanish partners!

We were delighted to have received 4 exceptional proposals to host the 2019 ERP gathering - from Finland & Sweden, Romania, France and Spain. This is an endorsement of the importance that the ERP Gathering has now achieved. The team of assessors had a difficult task to make their recommendations to the ERP Steering Group, which took the final decision at their meeting on September 26. We want to thank the 4 partners who went to so much effort to submit such excellent proposals. Unfortunately only one could be chosen this time!

We will circulate more information on the ERP website, newsletter and social media as plans develop, so please keep an eye on these in the coming period.
