(14 January 2020) – AEIDL participated in the fourth European Rural Parliament in the village of Candás, Asturias, Spain, on 6 to 9 November 2019.


335 participants from 38 European countries included rural people, representatives of civil society organisations, researchers, development experts, rural development agencies, local and national governments and European Union institutions.

The forum highlighted that the dominating urban and growth agendas combined with the disconnection between local rural people and decision-makers as a significant threat to rural life.

The main message of the ‘Rural People´s Declaration of Candás’: work together towards a common and inclusive Rural Agenda with all stakeholders.
