European Rural Parliament 2015 – Tuesday, 30th June at The Lodge, Castlewellan 7.00pm – 9.30pm

Rural Community Network is partnering with 29 other organisations across the EU to feed into the 2015 European Rural Parliament scheduled to take place at the start of November in Scharding in Austria.

The overall purpose of the EU Rural Parliament is to:
-To strengthen the voice of the rural communities of Europe, and to ensure that the interests and well-being of these communities are strongly reflected in national and European policies
-To promote self-help, common understanding, solidarity, exchange of good practice and cooperation among rural communities throughout Europe.

The purpose of the workshops in NI is to inform discussion at a NI rural parliament event which we plan to hold in October. This, in turn, will inform deliberations and delegates who will attend the EU Rural Parliament in November in Austria. The workshop will be interactive and will seek the opinions of a wide range of rural dwellers.

Come along and ensure your voice is heard on the issues that matter to you.
