European Commission launches the Rural Pact


On 20 December 2021, the European Commission launched the Rural Pact, a key new initiative announced in the Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas. The new pact aims to mobilise public authorities and stakeholders to act on the needs and aspirations of rural communities. It will provide a common framework to engage and cooperate at EU, national, regional and local level.

Vice-president Šuica, Commissioner Wojciechowski and Commissioner Ferreira extended an open invitation to join the discussion on the Rural Pact. All interested parties are invited to express their commitment to the goals of the vision – by completing the Rural Pact engagement form – and participate in the development and implementation of the Pact.

Between December 2021 and June 2022, stakeholders and rural actors can join the Rural Pact community and share reflections and ideas on its implementation and development. In June 2022, the Commission will organise a Rural Pact high-level conference giving the opportunity to bring all contributions together and define the actions to take.
