We are a European coordination network for rural and Christian youth organisations all over the continent. Today we represent over 130. 000 young people from rural areas in 13 European countries. The organisations and movements which are part of our network are active either at local or national level and they are led by, for and with young people. We promote sustainable agricultural, rural and international development, European citizenship, youth policies, gender equality, environmental protection, interculturality and human rights. Considering the Christian values, we strive to implement and raise awareness about these issues and goals by facilitating inter-cultural exchanges, camps, seminars and non-formal learning opportunities in a sustainable and culturally sensitive manner. Employing our methodology of ‘see-judge-act‘, we encourage the participation of young people to build the Europe of tomorrow.
