The countryside is not a blast from the past, it is a key player in the EU’s future, according to an Tribune by our founder president Jacques Delors, MEP and former president of the Committee of the regions Mercedes Bresso, president of RED and of the Mouvement européen de la ruralité Gérard Peltre and president of Sol & Civilisation Anne-Claire Vial, published in French by Contexte.
This Tribune is based on 3 points:
1. Rural life, a neglected element in the European Union’s DNA
2. The countryside in the 21st century, a world of solutions
3. Rethinking the rural environment
