25 March 2021 workshop on“Organic Districts: revitalizing rural areas” – Rural Vision Week

12.15-13 with the participation of Salvatore Basile, Jaime Ferreira, Aina Calafat Rogers.


The European Network for Rural Development (ENRD), in close cooperation with the European Commission, is organising a virtual event – ‘Rural Vision Week: Imagining the future of Europe’s rural areas’ between 22 and 26 March 2021.

This interactive event will include high level presentations and discussions, a marketplace, workshops and ‘fringe’ activities. These will involve European stakeholder participants in working together to contribute to the preparation of a long term Vision for the future of EU rural areas in relation to which the Commission is scheduled to adopt a Communication later this summer.  

Come and visit the ‘virtual stalls’ in ‘OUR RURAL’ Marketplace everyday between 22 and 26 March 2021! Throughout Rural Vision Week, the ENRD Contact Point will provide space on our website for rural stakeholders, local communities, EU organisations, research projects and others to present aspects of their rural vision.

‘Fringe’ Workshop events will be held on the morning of Thursday 25 March 2021. They will provide a space for various stakeholders and organisations with an interest in rural areas to present their perspectives and messages within their own rural vision session. Check the list of Fringe Workshop events below.

English will be the working language of the event. For the plenary sessions, interpretation will be provided into English, French, German, Italian, Polish and Spanish. Additionally, the opening plenary will include Portuguese interpretation.
