Join a Community Group
What are Community Groups?
Community Groups are dedicated online spaces within the Rural Pact Community Platform (RPCP) that bring together stakeholders to connect with peers, exchange, share information such as publications, news, events or implement any other joint action around a specific shared interest or topic relevant for the Rural Vision.
The value of these Community Groups emerges from the collective action that exchanges can trigger from the community and all its members.
The Community Groups enable the members of the Rural Pact to coordinate their efforts and actions in or for rural areas while demonstrating their commitment and contribution to the Rural Pact objectives and the goals of the long-term vision for rural areas.
Each Community Group is animated, moderated and managed by one or more Community coordinators. These are European or national stakeholder organisations and institutes who commit to bring forward a specific Community Group within the Rural Pact.
All members of the Rural Pact can join any relevant Community Group. Find the right Group for you:
