PoliRural was presented at the Rural Pact Conference, that took place on 15 and 16 June in Brussels. The event was an excellent opportunity to share PoliRural results achieved so far, and to build new synergies with other projects and initiatives.
The conference was organised by the Commission in partnership with the European Committee of the Regions, the European Economic and Social Committee, the European Parliament, the Presidency of the European Council and the European Rural Parliament.
The Rural Pact conference brought together EU, national, and regional politicians along with local authorities, social and economic stakeholders in a participatory event that reflected the rural vision’s ambition and bottom-up character. It sought to engage participants in designing the governance of the Rural Pact and gather commitments for the achievement of the long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas. Plenary and breakout sessions were alternated to ensure maximum interaction at this event.
