ROAD – Rural Opinions, Advocacy and Development

16. February 2020.

Project name: ROAD – Rural Opinions, Advocacy and Development

Objective: The aim is to activate rural inhabitants to express their needs and propose solutions. These purely people-initiated solutions are to be connected to research for more evidence-based results (by contacting universities or in connection to research projects). Participants are invited to participate in the advocacy and partnership work with EU through the European Rural Parliament (ERP) network having in view a potential civil society initiative. The project is also about informing people about EU, its rural policies and citizens activities all over Europe.

Activities: The communication campaign on EU and ERP will be followed by activating social media campaigns, mini-policy-debates, surveys, six or more thematic events and the concluding ERP-Gathering. The main ERP event  (serving already as a platform for different initiatives) will bring all the activities of this project together and provide a basis for an even stronger partnership in the European rural community and between EU and the rural citizens.

Topics: youth, research, local economy, volunteering, CLLD and Brexit.

Duration: 1 August 2018 – 31 January 2020

Partners:  HMRR is a partner together with 19 other organizations from 17 EU countries

Financing: European union – Europe for Citizens programme – 148.680 EUR
