  • "RURAL EUROPE ON THE MOVE - a travel guide to transitions" still available. Our newly launched book is an invitation to dive into 25 years of experiences in sustainable rural development in Europe and to explore pathways to the future.
    It is the collective work of twelve authors who share their personal stories of bringing together local communities, farmers, foresters, environmentalists, and political decision makers so as to facilitate the transition towards a more sustainable and inclusive rural Europe.
    It is a call upon young people to make their rural regions and communities fit, so that they can respond to the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and social exclusion, making their own rural future more resilient and attractive.
