Let’s build RURENER’s roadmap and advocacy messages!

Join us on April 2nd, 2021, from 10h30 to 12h (CET) for an online workshop to launch RURENER’s advocacy strategy and roadmap building!

An effective vision of rural development, aware of its territories’ potential and challenges starts by having a well-based definition. Therefore, we invite you to share your conception of a rural territory, its resources and the various barriers they’re facing. A definition that reflects the specificity of EU regions and its diversity will give us the opportunity to build a shared understanding and lay the basis for the building of RURENER’s road map and renewing our message.

Check out the programme here with the link for registration and direct access to the online workshop!

RURENER Live episode 2!

After a first video dedicated to territorial dialogue, we propose you to discover one of the newest members of RURENER that joined us in 2020: the Intermunicipal Community of Ave (Cim do Ave), located in northern Portugal.

Check out the video on local strategy against climate change, by Marta Coutada (Cim do Ave). The Intermunicipal Community of Ave is a stakeholder in the COLEOPTER project, making it possible to place this pilot experience at the heart of the strategic project of an entire territory.

In Portuguese with an option of English subtitles (to be selected in the lower part of the video)

COLEOPTER continues!

Despite the endless sanitary crisis, the COLEOPTER project, funded by the Interreg Sudoe programme through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and led by RURENER, continues.

An important part of the project consists of the conduct of territorial dialogue in order to co-construct the workplan on each demonstrator building, taking into account not only technical consideration (energy and water efficiency), but also people’s needs. The first collective sessions to share a common diagnosis of the situation and stakes were conducted in Cartagena (Spain) and Povoa de Lanhoso (Portugal) at the end of January. Soon to be followed by the session on the 2 buildings in Est Creuse.
