Title: Shaping the Future of European Rural Villages
Summary
Over 77% of the EU's territory is classified as rural and is home to around half its population (farming communities and residents). During these last decades the rural communities were severely affected due to urbanisation. The continued depopulation of many peripheral communities have effected negatively the rural economies, rural services and the architectural and natural heritage. All participating municipalities have been affected by this phenomena.The aim of this project is to bring citizens from these rural villages to discuss how to revive and strengthen the economies of Europe’s rural villages and shaping the future of a better European countryside. The project will focus on the farming policy, the capacity of rural tourism and the natural and cultural heritage of small villages, with reference to various policies.The project, which involves 7 organisations from Malta, Ireland, Poland, Italy, Czech Republic and Portugal, will include six different events and the creation of a handbook, that will target different sectors that contribute to the economies and livelihoods of the citizens. These are:- Agriculture: changing the emphasis from quantity of food to quality of food;- Manufacturing, craft and service industries: revival of local economies;- Rural Tourism: new income;- The natural and cultural heritage: preserving the heritage of wildlife, landscape and culture; and- Rural Housing and services: modern amenities vs respecting local traditions of building.The project will target over 300 different participants. The target groups are: - councillors, researchers, academics and policy makers, - farmers and farmers cooperatives, - entrepreneurs and small businesses in the manufacturing, crafts and service industries; - stakeholders in the tourism sector; - Non-governmental organisations (NGOs); - architects, builders and environmentalists; and - pensioners (to share their past experiences).
