The 2022 edition of RURENER annual meeting was yet another success! Thanks to the funding provided by the European Union through the Citizens Equality Rights and Values programme, this year’s event was a whirlwind of languages and discussions. Almost 40 participants from 7 EU countries took part in the workshops, presentations and visits between July 6th and July 8th, 2022. You can check the full report of the event here.
As the main goal of the LINK-EU project is the building of the Rural Resilience Roadmap, a key document for RURENER’s members, we are also opening up a public consultation to collect more contributions on the trajectory of rural territories, the current barriers and initiatives. Take a few minutes to give us your feedback!
Thanks to all for your participation and contributions, see to the next event in Les Monts du Lyonnais (France), from November 30th to December 2nd!
In February 2022, the “Massif Central in Transitions” projet was launched in the Monts du Lyonnais. During two days, actors from Creuse, Lot, and the Ouest Rhodanien gathered together to work on this project. Technicians, elected officials and socio-economic actors were present.
The first day began with the welcome by the mayor of Meys, followed by a presentation of the territory, and the several projects that were implemented in this territory.
After this presentation, we visited Meys’ eco-district, a project that started with the construction of a new school, but that was extended to the building of new social housing and areas for children.
Using the Interreg Europe catchphrase seems quite adequate to describe the online workshop organized by RURENER on November 26th aiming at building cooperation project ideas from shared challenges between the rural territories of the network.
A rich discussion followed-up by small groups talks to dig in the project ideas mentionned. From a participative observatory of rural transition policies and measures to the development of Green industrial zones adapted to rural areas or mobility challenges… The topics discussed were very stimulating and promising for future project proposals of high quality!
From October 20th to 23rd, the municipality of Prespes, Greece, hosted RURENER 2021 General Assembly meeting. After a year of online meetings, it felt so good to go on the field again to share experiences and get inspired!
From energy upgrades in public buildings to a carbon positive territory, Prespes’ engagement has been growing over the year, along with the development of EU projects, in particular transborder cooperation with Albania and the Republic of North Macedonia.
