Topics of work
The topics of our thematic workshops derive mainly from local initiatives. They are representative of different European rural areas, reflect a common concern but also the commitment expressed by local people to take common action.
In practice, multi-national workshops are held in different regions in Europe in the frame of a same thematic. Participants get inspired by field trips and will be encouraged to comment on the local situation from their point of view. This is the basis for a moderated exchange about experiences.
The output of these workshops might inspire solutions for participants’ situation. They are also evaluated in order to draw political conclusions.
For the next period, several topics proposed by members or partners have been identified, some have already started and other will be (re-)launched soon:
- Civic Dialogue: dialogue between different stakeholders for sustainable rural development
- Sustainable Forestry practices by civil society
- Rural Actors for Health safeguarding traditional knowledge for the benefit of society
- Rural Youth
