Which future do you want in rural areas?

Take part in shaping the future of rural areas

The world in which we live is experiencing and undergoing profound transformations. The glasses with which we looked at rural areas have changed and has made us a source of inspiration for our ability to solve problems, assume responsibilities and face new challenges. Let's take advantage of this opportunity!

The LEADER methodology and our way of acting -based on participation, innovation and public-private collaboration- can play an essential role in facing a new social, economic, cultural and environmental paradigm in rural areas

Through this survey, REDR intends to reflect, take sides and define among all how LEADER can continue to improve the quality of life of rural areas and their inhabitants in the near future.

Why should you participate? Your voice will be heard: as REDR we will ensure that your opinions and ideas are transferred to regional, national and European political leaders and officials of regional and local administrations. All the responses collected in this macro survey will be exposed in turn in our different information channels and through our associates.
