  5. EU Long Term Rural...

The European Commission has announced their intent to develop a Long-Term Vision for Rural Areas across the EU. This vision includes supporting Rural Areas in addressing challenges such as demographic change, connectivity, employment opportunities and limited access to services and to help them to further develop their potential. This vision is set to be developed in close consultation with people living in rural areas, as well as local and regional authorities. A thematic group has also been set up to include informed and engaged stakeholders from different parts of Europe to help with the development of this vision. Dr Maura Farrell, Lead Researcher with the NRN and Lecturer in Rural Geography at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) has been selected to form part of this thematic group and to present the Irish case.
