  • The European Commission unveiled on Wednesday (30 June) its long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas, proposing a rural pact and a rural action plan aimed at making those regions stronger, connected, and prosperous.
  • Among the measures included in the rural action plan, there will be the setting up of a rural revitalisation platform, a one-stop-shop platform for information on existing projects and funding possibilities for rural communities, rural project holders, and local authorities.
