Long-Term Vision

The long-term vision for the EU’s rural areas is a European Commission initiative to develop a common European vision for 2040.

In shaping this long-term vision, the Commission gathered the views of rural communities and businesses via public consultations and stakeholder-led events. Through this collaborative process, the Commission created a wide-ranging vision and a comprehensive rural action plan to help rural communities and businesses reach their full potential in the coming decades.
