Opis projektuEuropean Network for the Cohesion and Solidarity in Rural areas (ENSuRe) The project serves the need for a greater involvement of citizens from rural areas in the development of a solidary Europe. More precisely the Network of ten authorities (towns and regions) and civil society organizations from the EU and neighbouring countries will provide opportunities to address issues which are prevalent in rural areas and stand in the way of a solidary Europe, such as: misunderstanding of EU policies, disinformation, and stereotypes. The Network will also empower citizens with the tools necessary to be involved in shaping a more democratic Europe. The project duration is 24 months from Febuary 2017. It will consist of five transnational events organized by different partners between March 2017 and October 2018. Each event will gather foreign participants representing all project partners, as well as local citizens. The events will be followed by information and dissemination events on each partners’ territory. Project events will be dedicated to the following topics: - agricultural policy and the citizens' perception of the EU on rural areas - finding common solutions for promoting local development - food security - cross-border mobility of workers involved in agriculture - tools to address crisis management in agriculture policy - local action groups and Rural Development organisations having an EU perspective - community-led local development, interaction with the community, local action groups - the macro and micro economic impact of the TIPP (facts and myths) - the decline of support of the EU integration process on rural areas.
