EU Rural Review 28

The theme of this EU Rural Review is 'mainstreaming the bioeconomy'.

With the spotlight firmly focused on how society can manage its natural resources in a sustainable way, rural areas around Europe are increasingly getting primed and ready to reap the benefits of the bioeconomy. This publication looks at the major role played by the new EU Bioeconomy Strategy as well as the importance of local and regional actors to enhance the development of the bioeconomy.

The content of the publication has been informed by the work of the ENRD Thematic Group on 'Mainstreaming the Bioeconomy'.

This is the highlights report of the ENRD Workshop on 'Combatting Rural Depopulation: Cretaing new opportunities for vibrant rural areas'. 

It overviews the key drivers and effects of population decline in rural areas across the EU, looking at the role of the Rural Development Programmes (RDPs) and other EU policies and instruments in order to help create an enabling rural environment. It explores examples of projects contributing to the creation of business opportunities and the improvement of services and quality of life in rural communities, as well as examples of integrated approaches that can help combat rural depopulation.

This is the main report of the eighth meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group (TG) on 'Smart Villages'. 

It provides information about how a specific village (Lormes, France) has embarked on a participative process to co-design a ‘village of the future’ and the way they have built different components of the local ‘digital ecosystem’. The report also outlines similar initiatives and plans for developing local digital ecosystems in Germany, Spain and Donegal (Ireland).

This is the main report of the third meeting of the ENRD Thematic Group (TG) on 'Mainstreaming the Bioeconomy'.

It summarises the presentations and discussion around awareness raising approaches to inform rural stakeholders of the benefit of bioeconomy. It highlights also the main points of discussion on the recommendations produced by the TG on using the RDPs to promote rural bioeconomy.

Questo numero della rivista rurale dell’UE esamina il ruolo delle reti nella politica di sviluppo rurale. Illustra l’evoluzione delle reti, che sono ormai diventate una caratteristica distintiva dello sviluppo rurale in Europa.

Tutte le tipologie di portatori di interessi rurali interagiscono nell’odierno ecosistema di reti, sempre più complesso. La pubblicazione conclude esaminando il modo in cui le reti continueranno a evolversi nel futuro ambiente politico.

Per maggiori informazioni sulle reti, vi invitiamo a visitare ‘networX’, il maggior punto di ritrovo degli operatori di reti rurali organizzato nel quadro dell’attuale periodo di programmazione.

Le reti – e le reti per lo sviluppo rurale ne sono un ottimo esempio – sono formate essenzialmente e soprattutto da persone. Ci si riunisce, si elaborano nuove modalità di riflessione e azione e, insieme, si costruisce qualcosa di nuovo, qualcosa più grande della somma delle singole parti, e qualcosa che risulti vantaggioso per ogni comunità rurale.

In occasione di networX – il maggior punto di incontro della comunità di reti rurali in Europa, organizzato nel periodo di programmazione 2014-2020 – desideriamo rendere omaggio allo spirito umano della creazione di reti e celebrare i 10 anni della Rete europea per lo sviluppo rurale (RESR).

Il volume evidenzia le reti rurali attraverso gli occhi dei giovani, poiché sono loro che determineranno il futuro sviluppo dell’ambiente rurale europeo. Illustra inoltre il modo in cui le reti sostengono l’imprenditorialità rurale, l’ambiente, il patrimonio rurale e le comunità rurali dinamiche, aspetti in cui le reti rurali hanno un impatto inconfondibile.

This is the main report of the 13th meeting of the National Rural Networks (NRNs) in the 2014-2020 period. Event co-organised by the Irish Rural Network Support Unit.

This is the main report of the ENRD Workshop on 'Biodiversity and the CAP: working together to reach conservation goals'.
