Scottish Rural Action are offering the opportunity for two of our members to attend the third European Rural Parliament, this year taking place in Venhorst, Netherlands from Wednesday 18th October to Saturday 21st October.
The event will see delegates from over 40 countries, including those from European rural networks and national policy makers. ERP2017 will bring to a climax the activities from our national and European partners as well as from work on key themes identified in ERP2015. We will share our experiences, debate our recommendations, re-confirm the European Rural Manifesto and agree the Venhorst Declaration. There will be field visits to the surrounding areas and an exciting social programme. The emphasis will be on the spirit and heart of the ERP – the people and communities.
