On July 2020, the European Commission released a Roadmap for the Adoption of the Communication on the Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas. The European Commission aims to create a debate on the future of rural areas and the role they have to play in our society.

This initiative will set out a vision for the future of rural areas by 2040 and gather views covering challenges such as:

  • Demographic change;
  • Connectivity;
  • Low income levels;
  • Limited access to services.


It will also explore innovative, inclusive and sustainable solutions in the light of climate and digital transformation and the COVID-19 crisis.
